Just discovered that Steve Ladurantaye has a blog where he also posts his Globe articles. Here’s one I missed on the TV numbers for the Indy on TSN v SN. Some interesting stuff.

I assume mostly because of Hinchcliffe’s wins, there certainly seemed to be more people at the Toronto Indy race(s) this year than in the last few years (though still no where near as many as during the ’80s and 90s). Apparently that didn’t translate to TV ratings.

A few years ago, I think when Champ Car was bought out by IndyCar and the Toronto race was cancelled, I saw a suggestion that if it returned Downsview Airport could be a good location for it, similar to what had been done in Edmonton and Cleveland. With the subway and GO train station being built there, it might have been a good idea and would have avoided closing Lakeshore Blvd and all the fences and barriers cluttering up Exhibition Place for several weeks every year.

In part because of McCown’s summer absence, and his increasing mental absence when he’s physically there, I’ve lost most interest in listening to sports radio in the afternoon unless there’s some event worth hearing discussed. I spend almost all of my public transportation trips watching some of the 100 hours of TV shows I’ve recorded and been unable to watch at home, now that I learned how transfer to them to my iPod Touch. I have zero interest in playing games, which seems to be what most people, even grown adults, are doing when they’re using mobile devices when on trains and buses.

Totally unrelated…but how do you get your PVR’d shows to your ipod touch? I would love to do this.

I’ve been using a USB tuner to record the TV shows onto the computer’s hard drive. You then use a program like Handbrake (or others) that change them to mp4 video format to put them into iTunes then sync to the iPod Touch.
I don’t know of any easy way there would be to transfer them from a cable box PVR. You might have to just play them at regular speed with the PVR output going into the USB tuner to record them onto the computer, which would be kind of pointless and time-consuming, unless maybe you could do it one TV show at a time starting it when you leave the house or before you go to sleep overnight.
