Am I the only one who, after having a PVR (TiVo/ReplayTV/Moxi) for long enough, wishes that car radios had prerecord/pause/skip/backskip as well?

I was listening to KING FM my the drive to work, and something the announcer said caught my attention, and I instinctively mentally "reached" for the "skip back 5 seconds" button.

I've tried to do that with reality (I don't listen to the radio) when something went by too quickly...

There's a gesture that I find myself doing -- it's a sort of clawing at the air -- when I try to grep whilst reading a book.

I do it - with radio, movies, when I'm watching TV away from my TiVos... And sometimes with reality, especially when I'm really tired.

Some years back, after a marathon session at work, I went to a mall to do some xmas shopping and I started thinking about what to grep the mall with to find what I was looking for.

BTW, did you get your RTV reimaged OK?
