It would be neat to be at work and log onto a website using your computer and be able to tell your PVR to record certain programs that you may have forgot to set while at home.
It's probably not too far fetched, I mean we can log onto Shaw's Video on Demand (VOD) site and order select movies, so all it would take is something to send a signal to the digital box at home to set the "record" option.
There is a box that does this. It is called a Tivo. I do this all the time when I realize I have to stay late and forgot to set a recording. Unfortunately the best Tivo box that records HD does not work in Canada because the majority of providers do not want to use cable cards.
