Gripe Gripe Gripe

OK, so I am playing with my video capture box learning how to edit and convert the data so I can burn DVDs for the kids so they can watch their favorite shows. I'm not doing this to be a pirate, but so I can reclaim my DVR (kind of VCR-ish but more geeky). This keeps getting interrupted by this thing called WORK!


So anyway, guy called in a couple of weeks ago and I had to walk him through completely configuring his VOIP PBX. Well, we told him he had stuff programmed all over the place and rather than do it by hand he should use our programming tools.

So, he did... Kind of.

The problem is he is STILL doing enough by hand to screw things up. So congratulations to me. I get to walk him through programming it AGAIN!

I am going to yank this guys credentials.

Hey there! Thanks for dropping by.

Unfortunately I lose some quality because I am taking the analog output to my TV and using a USB capture box I got from Tiger Direct. Once I have the files I am then using Womble's MPEG video wizard to edit it and convert to DVD.

All in all kind of fun and I can get my DVR back.

Stay in touch.
