Geekfishing on BitTorrent

Tong writes about the rise of BitTorrent.  He’s right.  I am one of those millions who download my favorite TV shows and watch them when it’s convenient for me.  Why don’t I use a PVR?  My satellite provider, ExpressVu, provides a PVR that, politely put, is garbage.  No search capability worth talking about, no "season’s ticket", and no HD.  It’s little better than a VCR built around a hard disk. 

What I want is an HD version of TiVO or Replay that can grab shows off the web with BitTorrent if I miss recording to disk when the show is aired.  Why is this so hard?
