    OT: Lance Armstrong.

    Going to watch the Ophrah interview with Lance Armstrong now, on the DVR.

    The show was an hour, 30 minutes long. But I'm not sure the entire show will be about Armstrong.

    We'll see.

    I see, I recorded something called "Lance Armstrong Part 2". But I only found out once I started playing it.


    Why didn't the program info itself have that?!

    He says his most humbling moment wasn't losing sponsors like Nike, Anheuser-Busch, Oakley, etc.



    It was when Livestrong asked him first to step down as chairman, then a few weeks later, asked him to sever all ties.

    If I like this, I'll try recording similarly titled shows to try and watch part 1.

    So, there's one annoying thing about Tivo.

    They don't tell you if sports are live.

    Normally this isn't a big deal, but with something like the AO, that has replays, I want to only record the live broadcasts, and not the rebroadcasts.

    So I have to have an external schedule tell me which ones are live, like ESPN's website. It would be nice if the program info could have said that itself.

    When I called Tivo about it a few weeks ago, they said it's because they get their program schedule from Zap2It, who gets it from TMS (Tribune Media Services). And I guess their program info is different from where the Comcast DVR would get it from.

    This might be why the Oprah's Next Chapter show doesn't tell if it's part 1 or part 2 for me, while someone who accessed their DVR's program guide might have it.

    They played a tape of a deposition he gave in September 2005, in which he said "the sponsorhips, if I was caught doping, would all be over. And it's not just the sponsorships, but the faith in all of the people that believed in me over the years, they would all be over too. And don't think I don't understand that . . ."


    Oprah (back to the interview): And here we are 8 years later . . .

    Yeah, this was a culture that he supposedly began and spread.

    It's just the fact that he continually lied and manipulated this
