Wally...I've seen that episode of Quantum Leap a few times. He becomes an elderly black man, who used to be the big stick...and has to play against the "heavy" for some serious action. Good show, with a positive image to convey.

It's a secret /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Actually I go to www.tvguide.com (http://www.tvguide.com) . There's a place to type in your zip code. Then lick on "TV listings", then "search" and search for the word "pool"

As luck would have it I just moved and don't have my VCR set up yet so I won't get to watch "Quantum Leap". It'll be on again soon though.

On ESPN2 on 5-15-03 at 4am EST they will televise the 2002 International Challenge of Champion. This is from AZ Billiards TV listings. Jake~~~have to go set my recorder now

Guys, if you want to keep up with all the TV matches without fooling with tapes and timers, you should consider investing in a good Personal Video Recorder system, like Tivo/DirecTivo, DishPVR, ReplayTV, etc. With my DirecTivo, I just set a Season Pass on "Category, Sports, Billiards" and it automatically records every match that comes on any channel at any time, and will not duplicate recordings. It's cool because there's no timers to set or tapes to rewind or replace, you just check your recorder listing and find all of these matches ready to watch at your leisure. You can also search all listings for keywords like "pool" to have it record those episodes like "Quantum Leap". As your recorder's hard drive fills up (after about 35 hours for my DirecTivo unit), you can dump the recordings off to VCR for archival purposes if you like. Of course, it makes watching other TV better as well, because it develops a sense for the shows you like and automatically records shows it thinks you might like. It's fun perusing the recording lists to see what it has decided to record for you... /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote Wally_in_Cincy:</font><hr>Seriously, how much initial cost and monthly cost for this ?<hr /></blockquote>Depends on what service and unit you go with.

I believe a stand-alone Tivo that works with your cable service runs around $300 and then $12 per month or a one-time $249 for a lifetime subscription. Or something like that. My Hughes HDVR2 DirecTV PVR (a combo DirecTV satellite tuner with integrated Tivo) was around $240 and the monthly Tivo service is only an additional $4.99 on my satellite bill.

I'm not sure about ReplayTV, DishNet, and the competitors, but I'm sure their website will tell you. ReplayTV used to sell their PVR's at a high price, like $600+, but the service was free. Now they are comparible to Tivo, i.e. around $300 for the box and then a monthly subscription fee.

I know what you mean about not watching much TV -- my wife and I are the same way, pretty much only watching movies or channels like TLC,Discovery,A&amp;E,Animal Planet,etc. But our TV viewing time is so limited (usually an hour or so at bed time) that we always missed the good shows (and I missed the pool matches). With Tivo, it automatically records the shows (and pool matches!) we like, and we can watch them whenever we get the chance. It's much more convenient than tapes and timers, and the quality is as good as the original source broadcast, unlike with a VCR. While our QUANTITY of television viewing is probably about the same, the QUALITY has improved dramatically with the Tivo, because now we can almost always find something we like between live TV and the recorded library.

My wife was a bit ticked off at me for spending the money on the thing, now I couldn't pry it away from her... /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
