Could someone record Conan O'Brian on Tuesday September 4th?

So, when Snowy gets here I got tickets to a taping for Conan. Probably will wind up getting a second or two of camera time when they pan, would be cool to get it recorded. For everyone who wants a picture of Snowy here's your chance!

Thanks!!

I'm probably wrong about this, but aren't these shows actually taped in advance, so that it will be aired later than September 4?

Shows like The Price Is Right are, but I think the late night shows are filmed earlier in the day for airing that night. Otherwise the topical humor would be a lot more difficult.

It's taped earlier in the day and aired at night - but we'll be on a Foo night party ride around Manhattan that night The taping will end around 6:30ish or so with just enough time to get back here, and get riding.

And jsharr - anytime!! Though Letterman and Conan don't compete - Letterman vs Leno and O'Brien vs that guy with the Scottish accent who was on the Drew Carey show.

You mean the one that airs early (aka 12:36 a.m.) Wednesday morning?

If so, I have my PVR set to record it. Unlike Portis, however, I can download shows to my PC and then burn them to DVD. A mid-quality 1hr show should run ~1.6GB unless I convert it to another format.

Yup - that's the one! If you can do it without too much trouble that would be awesome, thanks!

Actually - if you're using broadband I could create a login to my server and you can upload it there, skip the whole DVD process.

You'll be easier to spot wearing bicycle jerseys. Come to think of it, wearing a stinky cycling jersey might clear an area around you, making you difficult to miss.

Nice, I've gone to Conan twice so far, it was a good time.

Get to the line early to get good seats, first come first serve, unless you know someone at NBC. And go to the bathroom before you get inside cause they won't let you back to your seat; happened to my friend.

If anyone sees it tonight there's a skit on guns - I'm wearing a black with red and white streaked shirt behind one of the guys. You can see my watch too

That works for me. I've found the video from my DVR plays on my DVD software app without modification. After I've confirmed I have it, we can exchange private messages and work out the details.

Air,

I recorded the show, gave it a quick viewing to confirm I had the right one (I do) and am downloading it to my PC now. Send me a private message with upload instructions and I'll try to get to it tomorrow p.m.

Upload complete.

Let me know if you need something else.

P.S. I noticed a small hiccup in the playback during the gun skit segment. I believe that's the fault of Comcast (i.e., I've seen this happen before both with and without the DVR).
