  1. So I'm trying to figure it out, but can anyone tell me the equation/method for figuring out ratings with DVR factors in? I work late hours at DISH, and can never seem to get home for live primetime. I've started using the PrimeTime Anytime feature on my Hopper, which automatically records every primetime show on all four major networks. It's incredibly convenient not having to set a bunch of individual timers, but I'm still curious as to how my TV habits fit into the overall ratings formula. Any help?
