It might be a long-standing DVR fixture in the United States, but down in the land of kiwis TiVo hasn't shown up at all. That's changing this November, when the service finally reaches New Zealand. Unfortunately, TiVo comes with some caveats in...

It's not nice to steal intellectual property. That's what the U.S. District Court of Appeals said last month, ending a legal fistfight between TiVo and EchoStar. The court upheld a lower court ruling that the owner of the Dish Network infringed patents for a "multimedia time warping system."

Everything seems to be roses and lollipops for <A HREF="">TiVo</A> and <A HREF="">SonicBlue</A>, maker of ReplayTV devices. The Silicon Valley rivals are allies now that they've decided to put their time and money into promoting digital video recorders (DVRs) rather than fighting each other.

We think we have it pretty good here in the good old U.S. of A. We have Hannah Montana, a new puppy for the White House, and we've had TiVo for years.  Years and years. Folks in Australia might not seem so lucky. They just got TiVo,...

TiVo HD isn't the first high-def-capable or digital cable ready product from the world's winningest DVR brand. That would be the Series3. But the new model is the first HD-capable TiVo to sell for $299.

It feels like watching a tennis match&#151;back and forth, over and over. The decision to delay the analog-TV cutoff was passed by the Senate, rejected by the House of Representatives, passed again by the Senate last week, and finally passed today by the House with a vote of 264-158. Interestingly, the number of Republicans who voted for the bill (23) was greater than the number of Democrats who voted against it (10). Obviously, President Obama will sign it, since he spearheaded the effort to delay the transition in the first place.

Consider something really bright (like the sun on a sunny day) and something really dark (like under your covers at night). That span from light to dark can be expressed as a contrast ratio; the human eye has good ability in that regard. Now...

This morning I picked out the weekly Best Buy flyer from my Sunday paper and saw a DirecTV HD TiVo on special for $399 after mail-in rebate. My initial thought was, "cool! Looks like the new MPEG4 compatible HD DVR is finally out!" This thought died of loneliness seconds later as I realized the HD DVR in the ad is the trusty HR10-250 that sits in my own equipment rack. A terrific machine, but not compatible with the new MPEG4 compressed HD channels that DirecTV has very quietly rolled out in the last several months.
