csx4860 - Google Search or csx4360 - Google Search So, I'm watching "Who Wants to Be a Superhero?" on SCIFI and I notice on the billboard:

-HD Ready LCD TV
-16 9 Screen
-1368x768 Rexolution
-Model CSX4360 (or is it Model CSX4860? --Maybe if I recorded in HD I would know)
It's Just Like Being There!

Anyway, So I Google the Model CSX4860 and Model CSX4360 thinking "I wonder what company is 'Advertising' their big screen TV", and I come up with NOTHING! --SO, I guess it REALLY ISN'T Just Like Being There :) :) :) Anyway, maybe some other poor sucker will Google this and get a hit to my blog to see that only us freaks [with pause buttons on our DVRs] ever pay attention to these little crazy things....

I was the other guy that paused his dvr. Who ever paid for that advert didn't get there money's worth.
Ha! I, too, Googled that model number. Your site is the first one to come up! :-)
i think in a future show, they'll be taking a test to see how observant they are, by writing all that down...
I did the same thing and found only this page. I wonder if we will be Junior Detectives or something because we were at least curious enough to check it out (can't qualify as Senior Detectives, seeing as how we haven't solved the riddle, yet).
I don't think there is a riddle to be solved... I think that whoever was "in-charge" of setting up the mammoth TV screen thought it would be interesting to make it look like a "real" billboard. Although, I've never seen (that I recall) a billboard with a SPECIFIC model number... So, whoever set up the billboard--Thanks for giving me something to google.... But next time give us a webpage to "find" something for our troubles :) --Thanks again for those of you leaving your comments--I appreciate knowing that I'm not the only one who sits there pausing the TV and looking up strange things on the internet :)
okay, so I'm a lil slow at actually viewing my DVR'd programs, but it's nice to know there are other person's out there who think like I do. To me it looks like they painted a SONY all black ... but I agree with ya skye, they wanted to create a "real" (in the comic book) billboard. Interesting that the model number they created only generated this ONE google result .... no false positives (shaw100@aol.com)
Ok, the show is on again, I too searched for the CSX and ran across this page only in google.

Hopefully I/we'll learn more.

I dont have a DVR but i am curious, did they display both 4860 and 4360?

So the difference between the csx4860 and csx4360 is that in the first episode I couldn't quite tell the difference between the 4860 and 4360, in fact looking at the stats on the site, I see that a lot of people are still searching for both, so I'm still not 100% decided on which it is, although on week 2 I thought it was csx4860 because that seemed to be the most searched term... Anyway, glad to see that there are a lot of "Who wants to be a Superhero" fans out there, even some without DVRs--Pretty impressive Zach (okay, I guess you could have pushed pause on a VCR, but if you didn't, well then, I'm impressed).
Yeah, no VCR, they show the billboard a couple of times during the same segment so if you are watching for it it's not so tough.

No DVR I'm waiting on the OCUR card's from ATI and Windows Vista to support the cable card before buying a MCE dvr (MCE rocks, I am running Vista Ultimate at the house but no tv tuner card).

Anyway there are no updates here I was hoping someone would have posted the answer. It is interesting that yours is still the only site that pops up when people search for either csx4860 or csx4360.

I really don't think that there IS an answer Zach. I think that it is just a random sequence of letters and numbers that someone created without FULLY understanding that there are (more than I imagined) a few of us DVR-type people that google whatever we see on the TV. --and me, if I google it and don't find anything, then I just blog about how weird it is that no one else has created a webpage about it.
That answer (altho most likely right) is boring and no fun... ;-)
He he - I'm the real DVR guy.
I'm just watching the first episode of Who wants ... now. :)

Simple Simon

Good Job ! - you nailed it with the pause button! (me=pause button) And yes , some advertising agency deffinitly f'ed up by not using their model number for the tv there !

- the semi-long arm of the law

Johnny lawless

I love that people are still watching these episodes. It's funny, because still, there are really no sites that list these model numbers... Oh well. Thanks for posting!
Incredible!! Sept 07 and still just this site... Figured SOMETHING would come up... Well, it was interesting reading from all the other searchers of... uh... truth? Meaningless info? Not sure. EXCELSIOR!

Courtesy and Capitalization : Green Gabbro A friend of mine directed me to this page, particularly a quote from a comment left by a user: "One more thing, about the iPod. It’s[sic] spelling is part of the branding of the device; capitalizing that second letter helps set it apart (doesn’t it look strange and wrong when people write Ipod or I-Pod)? For a person to do the same thing and try to communicate an image via the spelling of their name just comes across as distasteful. But I’m willing to admit that I could be wrong" --Well, I personally do NOT think it distasteful, but then having a name like D. SKye Hodges, may make me a little biased. The most relevant reason for the capitalization is because I think that the name SKye has a masculine, and a feminine spelling (sorry to all you guys that have the name: Skye, and spell it Skye), I think that the feminine is Skye, and the masculine is SKye (that capital K just gives it that shot of testosterone that makes it a man). Anyway, it is an interesting read on capitalization. --Says D. SKye Hodges --Originator of the SKye.

I haven't ever blogged the full story. I changed my name (un-officially) in 1993, the capitalization became mine first because apparently, I'm a lazy typist (I use the "wrong" shift, and I don't let go fast enough when I am typing my name), and secondly because when I first started typing my name as SKye, I realized that it really was better, it just looked more like a male name (I have a somewhat distant cousin named Skye--and she is a girl, so I thought that SKye is just more fitting for me personally). My birth name was Dustin Skye Hodges, and I legally changed it to D. SKye Hodges back in 1999 or 2000. I'm a little different (as a person), and so is my name. But when people get to know me they understand (that me and my name go together pretty well).
Still relevant today, but now it's more about "Brand recognition" people recognize me with the SKye, it's easy to find me on Google, because the K is me. So, from lazy typist to changing it unofficially in 1993, then officially in 1999/2000, SKye is just who I am :)

These are two kidney stones that I passed in the last week. The second one (the bigger 4mm one) was passed on July 16th, 2006. This was the most painful kidney stone (of the 5 that I have had, the smaller one being number 4, and the larger one being number 5). I do not wish this sort of pain on anyone and I would HOPE that it is the last kidney stone I will ever have, it won't be, but I sure wish it would. Anyway, sorry to all of you that are grossed out by the pic. It's just a stone--GET OVER IT :) I will be. Posted by Picasa

Drink lots of water. I had a kidney stone in high school and it was horrible pain. The nurses at the hospital told me it's more painful than childbirth, and seeing I'll never give birth, I take their word for it.

The nurse also told me to drink lots of water to prevent stones. Haven't had one since... knock on wood.
