HOW TO – DVR with automatic commercial skip

Here’s a handy Instructable on making an auto-commerical skipping DVR using SageTV, Vielmetter writes – “I hate commercials…especially the repetative ones on my favorite shows like Law & Order and the Jon Stewart show. I’ve spent a long time customizing my DVR, but I’ve finally got it to automatically skipp any and all commercials on my favorite shows. So now its time I share my work with the rest of the world so anyone can enjoy tv without annoyances.”Link.

    I was wondering if it is possible to make a new fish tank using the front of the CRT screen – and thus save the “bubble” look of old tv screens.
    I am currently beginning my own project and managed to roughly separate the screen from the rest of the CRT and clean it up a bit. My main problem is that i don’t know how to attach glass for a tank to the rounded corners of this piece.
    I hope that this has been achieved before…
