All About TiVo

TiVo is the first and most recognizable brand name of digital video recorder (DVR), which records TV shows and stores them on a hard drive. It’s much more interactive than a VCR, allowing users to record two shows at once and pause live television. More than four million TiVo boxes have been sold in the US, and millions more off-brand DVRs have been issued by cable companies. While the device is revolutionary (a show’s airtime is no longer relevant), it has had negative effects on the TV industry—so many people are recording shows and fast-forwarding through the commercials that advertisers have begun to look for other ways to make an impression. Result: more prominent product placement.
Studies say viewers with DVRs actually watch more commercials than those without DVRs.

    Interesting bits of information...
I tried recording a night/evening show to watch during the day... I was very disappointed... I don't think I ever did that again. The show just was not the same as it would have been when originally broadcast. I did record lots of movies,,, so I could watch them over and over again whenever I wanted to see them.
I know.. more feed back than you wanted to hear. Just pretend I never left this comment. Hugs Audra
