    DAMN you TIVO.

    Long story short I made a bet so now im down 1000$ (500 euros lol) so I need to start watching tv/using the tivo more.

    Probably dumb as hell to make a bet on a tivo feature.

    I told her to press info to check the time on the tivo and she said it would jump to live tv, I told her it wouldnt so I told her to press guide and that it would stay on her show (like Direct TV and Brighthouse does). She said if it jumps to live TV you have to clean abunch of shit so I said ok if I win I get 1000$ which she agreed 2 (which should have been an immediate sign as to her being correct). I didnt get the cash but the 19th (the 18th is my bday so I dont have to do shit other than the basic things) I have to work like a sob to get what she wants done along with putting in wood flooring.

    Ahaha, too bad for you.

    If I ask my mom to press a button and she replies "it's gonna jump to live TV", then I'll probably believe her.

    As non-tech-savy person (like my ma) usually can't tell you what will happen when they press a certain button [​IMG]
