Millions of HDTV’s earliest adopters are wondering where is TiVo for their HDTV signals. Hughes released an extremely limited number of HD digital video recorders (DVRs) with TiVo in mid-April to consumers who preordered them, mainly from mainstream stores like The Good Guys! and online retailers.

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. Users who have PVRs are now calling the physical act of recording shows with their hard drive recorder “TiVo-ing” even if the service and hardware unit they are using is not actually a TiVo. This is remnisciant of how photocopying has become “Xeroxing” to many consumers and many people who blow their noses think they are using a Kleenex, when they are in fact most likely using a facial tissue. As much as consumers with PVRs rave about being able to “TiVo” their favorite shows and skip the commerials, TV executives and ad agencies are less excited.

The DirecTV Group Inc., Hughes Network Systems Inc. and Thomson announced a long-term agreement that will provide the recently acquired DirecTV satellite TV and internet system with new set-top hardware. This announcement comes as Hughes recently released a tiny allotment of the highly sought after HDTV TiVo digital video recorders.

The projected release for an HDTV TiVo from Hughes for DirecTV has been held firm at April 1, 2004, however the unit is not in stores as of yet. A quick call around to a number of Southern California mass market retailers confirmed that the announcement wasn’t an April fools joke and that the long awaited HDTV hard disc recording system for DirecTV with the TiVo interface will likely be on store shelves at dealers such as The Good Guys by April 12, 2004. 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. Many of the most hardcore HDTV enthusiasts have preordered their units months in advance. The difficulty of use of nearly all current HDTV receivers paired with the lack of being able to easily record the shows you want to see have made HDTV ...

Recent reports say the FCC is considering flagging HDTV signals in order to protect against users recording them at their high-resolution native resolutions. This comes as the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) is lobbying the FCC aggressively so that Hollywood’s best movies and TV programs are not easily recorded and duplicated at HDTV resolutions. While the FCC has not agreed to this flagging yet, fears of such a technological change have held up the much-anticipated launch of HDTV personal video recorders (PVRs). Over one year ago, Dish Network showed a PVR that could record HDTV at the CES trade show. They had the same black box at this year’s CES show just six weeks ago, yet none of the PVRs have been shipped to Dish Network consumers.
