Techie Adventures

daisy_knotwise and I have been creeping closer to assembling a Cubase-based 24-track mobile recorder. Today, I fell off the ledge.

Meanwhile, I've been playing with the new DVR that Gretchen let me buy for myself as a Christmas present. Once I learn how to use it, it will be pretty cool. So far, I've actually gotten it to record shows, which is the main idea. :) The TV Guide On Screen feature seems to work ok, except there are a lot of missing listings. *sigh*

The problem was getting it to play a CD through our stereo. After messing with it a bit, I got it to work. Now, I just have to get it to work repeatably. And I think I'm going to have to buy a bunch of new cables to get everything rewired in the optimum fashion. We'll see.
