    Well, people on here have said they've experienced the watching the whole series thing, yet you know better...

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Never seen it in person, therefore I will refuse to believe it. I know better than everyone else.

    I find it impossible to believe Justin Rodgie can co-exist with the rest of the planet. Yet he does. Hence, Richard`s theory is bunk.

    You've seen no evidence of it being done?

    Which is what I say about the watching-every-single-ball-of-a-five-Test-rubber scenario.

    I don't - I've been very careful not to say "rubbish, you did nothing of the sort".

    I've said "I can't bring myself to believe you're not exaggerating slightly".

    Actually, what I had in mind was more a TIVO sort of situation, where someone could simply pause the television if they wanted to leave the room for a minute. That's what I do.

    That's something that's often fascinated me and I've never looked into.

    Does the transmission just stop and then restart X minutes Z seconds behind schedule, and continue? If so, where does the deficit get made-up?

    If it's possible to do such a thing for an entire day it might, just, be possible but I still find it infinately unlikely.

    I don't have TIVO myself so I can't comment there, but what I do have (Foxtel IQ) does precisely that. If you pause and then restart after 3 minutes, you'll simply be 3 minutes behind time. You can fast forward ahead immediately, or make up the gap by fastforwarding between overs or even between balls, which is what I usually do.

    As far as doing it for an entire day is concerned, the pause feature is always available, so that's not an issue. I suppose you could only pause it for two days or so before it'd reset on you, though.

    Ive actually watched every ball of the India- England series from 2001 twice. I watched it live and they've shown the replay of those games all the time on dd sports in india for 3 years. Of course that was when i had a lot of time on my hands, over the last few years ive failed to watch half of even the England games.

    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I'm sure when I read through the 2005 thread you talk at one point about flicking onto the Cricket from AFL

    Haha yeah, you're right actually. Worries me that you remember that better than I do, though.

    Clashed with AFL finals time, and I would have missed half an hour or so to watch the end of the Sydney/Geelong prelim.
