Default the woodworking channel

Let's discuss the latest way to see out favorite show (the router workshop... in case you don't know what we are talking about).

For now it would be nice to have an idea of how many of us are watch and how many are not, and how much are we watching.

You can of course add comment or ask questions.

I would really like be able to record the shows for later perusing as the show moves a bit fast for a beginner like me.

I watch it sometimes. The time when "our" favorite show comes on here, it's well into 2am. Way too early/late for me. Been considering ordering the tapes of the shows... the price of the tapes are a bit too high for me.

Hi,

From what I've noted the woodworking channel seems to have 4 router workshop show a day each on a few time during the 24 hours. The schedule is in EST so I have to remember to fall back an hour to get my time. So I have to wait until 11:00 my time to see the next days show list and see if I want to watch any of that days programs and how badly....

What I really like is getting to see some of the show I have never seen. From what I know my local PBS has shown 1000-1413. I have not always watched the show because either I did not know about it or it wasn't on... not sure which.

I am trying to decide if I want to spend the $50 to get the software to record the show... especial if they decide to change formats or don't last very long... or if it is legal to record them...

Tried it. The feed is just too spotty. It was a frustrating experience. I'm using a DSL feed if that means anything.

It's great for travelling. Our ship has a pretty decent cellular modem, so I can grab a few episodes when in port.

Would like to be able to archive the episodes though.

Can't beat it for the price!

Technically, you CAN record anything shown on your tv or on your computer(s). You just can't make copies an sell them. It's the same with books/magizines, etc. You can make a copy of it but, can't sell the copies.

It just seems that when I get back inside the house to watch, either I've missed it or I'll be going back outside the next time it's on, so I still end up missing it.

DSL is part of the reason you are having trouble viewing. It doesnt matter if they call it "High speed". "Better than dial up" is far more accurate. There is no comparison to using a cable modem. I view the shows full screen and for the most part they are smooth running. Nothing that goes over the net is perfect, too many what if's involved.

I do watch when I can, but it's hard finding the time to sit in front of the computer screen - actually haven't been watching that much TV lately either.
