DVR, yes! TiVo, no!

DVR, yes! TiVo, no!
The New York Times reports this morning that what’s good news for consumers is bad news for TiVo. The bundling of Digital Video Recorders with cable and satellite providers spells doom for what has become the standard for personal video recording. “This really is the last stand for the stand-alone boxes; this is a dying product,” Aditya Kishore, an analyst for the Yankee Group, a technology consulting research firm in Boston, said in a telephone interview. “This is the last Christmas for the stand-alone TiVo box, or any stand-alone DVR box. By next year, the DVR functionality will be widely available in a wide range of other devices, including the set-top boxes.”
