TiVo is expanding the possibilities of digital video recording (DVR) technology with the announcement of new features that allow TiVo customers to download movies and music from the Internet, which would then be saved to the TiVo's hard drive.

Millions of Americans now have digital video recorders (otherwise known as DVRs or PVRs) thanks to TiVo, ReplayTV and cable and satellite providers who offer PRVs in their satellite receiver boxes.

The price will be around $1,000. Rumor has it that there will only be 4,000 to 5,000 units for shipment to launch the component to consumers.
