All of these problems can be avoided with the newest invention in recording. DVR is the latest technology enabling you to record television shows for later viewing. DVR, Digital Video Recording, allows many more options than the VCR that so many consumers have utilized to record their favorite shows. This new technology allows you to have total control over your television viewing experience. With DVR technology, you have the ability to pause and rewind live television, fast forward through recorded commercials, and easily find and record your favorite show. In fact with your DVR, you can set it to record the entire season of your favorite show with just the click of a few buttons. You will no longer have to be concerned with missing portions of your favorite show because dinner is burning or someone is at your door.

A DVR stores all video on internal memory eliminating the need for videotapes that must be labeled and stored. The amount of recording time available varies depending on the model you choose. Many offer at least 70 hours of recording time with some offering 200 hours or more. Some DVR receivers even allow you to record your favorite programming regardless of whether day or times or broadcast change. Perhaps the most recognizable name in DVR is TiVo®. TiVo® works with cable, satellite or even antennae services. With TiVo®, there is a charge for the box, generally $200-$300 along with a monthly charge for the service.

DIRECTV satellite service also offers a DVR with TiVo® combined so you can take advantage of the benefits of both services. If you have satellite service through DISH Network or DIRECTV, the DVR is a must have to be sure you don't miss any programming.
