They use a PC DVR. I have a TV card in my PC which I use to record content. It comes with the HP Media Center PCs that Ive purchased, but you get get the card seperately

 

Darn. I need to look into that when I get some money.

If you have Windows, you should already have Windows Media Center which comes with Windows Vista Premium and Windows 7. Thats the program used to do the recording. All you'd need to get after that is the hardware. I think its so much easier and more efficent to have my PC set up as a DVR than a standalone box. Makes it easy to move files around, edit, making gifs/clips, upload to YT, etc... And I dont have to pay a monthly fee to a cable company to use it. Plus space is never much of an issue as I can just shuffle things to an external hard drive or flashdrive for longterm backup.

I have Windows 7 on my laptop. But, no sound card. So, would the DVR still work? Or, would it not record sound?

You'd need a TV tuner and the simplest options for laptop is getting a USB one like this:

Connect that to your PC and then your cable to the end and you can watch and record tv

Fifty years?

Give me seventy-two years and maybe it'll be worth all the pomp and circumstance.

Does anyone want to start guessing what episodes they'll use?

I think the following are probably sure bets:
Clink/Boom
Stone dies
Luke and Laura's wedding
Sonny leaves Brenda at the alter
Sonny sees Brenda is alive
One of the Nurse's Ball

 

 

Luke saves the world

Luke sees Laura alive

Holly finds out Luke is alive

Luke and Holly held captive at the expo

Heather kills Diana Taylor

Blackie kills Lou

Lesley sees Laura alive

Frisco meets Felicia

Frisco marries Felicia

Frisco watches Felicia marry Colton

Sean marries Tiffany

Robin meets Robert

Robin is rescued and runs to Anna

Lucy transforms

Bobbie and Monica held hostage

Monica and Alan fight with the red rubber bats

 

 

there are 50 episodes, so much to choose from...

 

Bobbie discovers Carly and Tony

Bobbie discovers Michael is her grandson

Bobbie discovers BJ is dead

Felicia learns BJ is dead

Ryan terrorizes Audrey

Tracy and the medicine

Tracy and Monica fight in the fountain

Robert takes Lucas from Bobbie

Robert and Anna die

Yeah not many shows hit that kind of milestone and none of the current soaps will hit that, probably not even Y&R, Days MIGHT hit it, but it's hard to tell.

Days will hit it.

 

Its renewed now through its 49th year, two months shy of its 50th actually. Im sure everyone will proclaim that its the shows last renewal, like they do everytime it is renewed.

I hope SOAPnet gives that show the same consideration if it or the network is still around in 2015.

SN has been going off the air for like 2 years now. It'll be hilarious if that's still the case in 2015
