    Bahahaha! You should write an article about this one. Here's my take. I'm in charge of the DVR in my home. Do you want to know why? Well, I'm telling you anyway. It's because men refuse to read instructions and can't figure out how to get it to work. It's not that difficult, really. But, women have better reading comprehension. Best of all, she who controls the DVR gets the power over what shows are recorded. Therefore, our DVR is full of Real Housewives of virtually every city in America and HBO/Showtime series. If my husband ever figured it out, it would have football on it. I'm not telling him, though. I like the power.

      Denise:  I think you may be right about a man's reading comprehension since I read your comment and have no idea what you are talking about! smile Seriously though, I think you are right on the money with who controls the shows. Thanks for stopping by

    My husband can't figure the darn thing out, so that leaves me to do it.  So yes, I guess you missed the memo.

    At a guess, I'm saying that, DVR is a TV recorder of some sort.  My wife does it, not because of any of the reasons of gender streotyping quoted in another answer, but because , since I sufered a stroke, I can't handle the remote or read the tiny letters on it to do the job.  When we first got our current model, we both went through the tome of insttructions that came with it to work out how to use it.  It is a farce really, having a certain time to enter things or the machine returns to the start, we had to do it as a joint venture as my wife is long sighted, and I am short sighted, she read the stuff on the screen as I entered stuff  from the book.
    This question has invited gender stereotyping in some of the answers it has attracted.
