Chapter 28. Digital Video Recording: TiVo, ReplayTV, and UltimateTV

Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) are the digital equivalents of VCRs but without the tapes. They work by storing the programming on a digital hard disk inside the unit instead of on video cassette tape. These digital hard disks often can store up to 80 hours of programming, thus eliminating the need for a large number of bulky cassette tapes.

Being digital, they are capable of much more functionality than a traditional VCR. They can record live television just like a normal VCR, but they can also pause, rewind, slow-motion, and instant replay live TV. What’s more, they have advanced features for recording content based upon your favorite actor, director, genre of show, keywords, or show titles.
