a good peek at TiVo headquarters as I give him the tour). And read for

This one’s for real sports fans…those with a preference for not just their
favorite team, but their favorite sportscaster, too. If you’ve ever tried
to listen to a sporting event on the radio and watch it "live"
on TV, you already know that the TV program is delayed by several seconds
so the audio precedes the video. If you happen to have your computer near
your TV, here’s a helpful tip from fellow subscriber M. Tyson who writes,
"Now I can watch the TV program and listen to my favorite sports commentators,
all in synch, thanks to TiVo."
Using his favorite university’s webcast, Mr. Tyson synchronizes the online
audio from the webcast with the TiVo® video like this:
- Mute your TV audio and turn up the audio from the webcast
- Hits PAUSE at a note-worthy moment (for instance, a basket being scored)
and wait for the audio to catch up.
- Then hit PLAY on your TiVo® remote.
- If you wait a smidge too long, just use your FAST-FORWARD buttons.
The two stay in synch from then on, at least until you rewind 8 seconds
to see the horrible call that the official made or missed!

"I’ve been a ‘TiVo-tee’ and early adopter for at least 3 years now.
Can’t remember LBT — Life Before TiVo," writes Dan S. "I
want to share a game I made up with my young girls, ages 6 and 9, while
watching our beloved Red Sox to teach them the strike zone–the essence
of baseball, really — and make the game a little more interactive.
I find we don’t really need to keep score, but it really helps my kids
stay focused on the game, and to learn what the pitchers and batters are
trying to do."
- Get your kids to watch closely while the pitcher is winding up.
- Hit the PAUSE button when the catcher catches the ball.
- Taking turns on each pitch, ask your kids to guess whether the pitch
was a strike or a ball (after teaching them what a strike is).
- Resume PLAY and see if the umpire agrees!
size="2">Bonus Tip: Use WishList®
searches to find and record all your favorite games. Create a keyword
search for RED SOX. Or use the WishList® feature to search by Category
only, selecting "Sports" as a category, and "Baseball"
as a sub-category. Don’t forget to pad your recording in case the game goes
into those nail-biting extra innings. size="1">
