All I can say is Holy Cow!!

Tuesday nights are completely full. I can't record everything I want. Starting next Tuesday, the 18th:

7:00 - Southland, White Collar, Lights Out
8:00 - NCIS, No Ordinary Family, Glee (which has not returned yet)
9:00 - NCIS-LA, V
10:00 - The Good Wife, Detroit 1-8-7.

And those are just the ones I watch. I think Memphis Beat returns on this night as well.

At least the cable shows are repeated during the week so you have a good chance of catching it on another day. As for the network shows thats why I love my 625 and AAD west coast feeds.

We watch just about all of those too, but we're covered. :)

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

What is AAD?

These do take into account West Coast times - I have the first three cable shows at 7:00 - thank goodness. Because if they were at 10:00, I would have 5 shows to record at that time.

I am planning on catching Lights Out on Friday nights. I know White Collar replays, but I haven't seen Southland repeated? Probably just missed that.

All American Direct is the company that provides distant networks to E* subs (at least for now) They provide me the Sanfransisco ABC NBC CBS and FOX. So what i can not record between 8pm and 10pm EST I can record The SHowswhen they Air on the west coast @ 8pm PST (11pm EST)

Southland, White Collar and Lights Out are all repeated throughout the night, and the week, so you'll catch alternate broadcasts.

Glee returns 2/6/11 according to thefutoncritic.com.

Memphis beat doesn't come back until Summer so no need to worry there.

Might be time to pick up another DVR for Tuesdays at 8. :)

For me, there are three nights I'll be recording 4 shows simultaneously during a prime time hour for much of the rest of this season. And there are a number of time slots I'll be recording 3 shows. And yet, there are a many hours during the cable prime time (5-8 pm) and broadcast prime time (8-11 pm) nothing is recording. But I still am recording more than we'll ever watch as I keep filling up external hard drives.
