It keeps a 30 minute buffer of whatever channel it happens to be tuned to, at all times. WTF? I program it to record the stuff I want. It NEVER needs a buffer of live TV. It’s really annoying. I’ve submitted this as a feature request on their site two or three times, and mentioned it to tech support types every time I’ve talked with them…

Black himself will tell you he spent his time in prison teaching and sharing his talents, while those in the know say he paid off others to be his lackeys and do his duties.

His supporters believe anyone who thinks his actions were criminal are jealous… and he being our “Canadian royalty” not a bad word is to be spoken of him…

Although he certainly is guilty, there are many more deserving of his fate who are off Scot-free and will never set foot in a prison. I will give his supporters that one…
