Because of a stupid quirk in our new HDTV system set-up, we can’t change the channel while we’re recording something on the VCR. (Modern technology my ass.) We have a number of people who rely on us to tape Queer Eye for the Straight Guy each Tuesday evening, which causes a bit of a conflict on game days.
I’m getting very good at flipping between the Cubs game and QE, hitting the commercials just right, but it makes for a schizophrenic viewing experience for those watching the tape. Perhaps this will be just the push I need to break out the instruction manual and figure out how to use picture-in-picture.
