    Tivo is a sort of recorder. You can set it to record your favorite shows on TV, and then you can watch them. It doesn't use a tape like a VCR, so it's a bit easier to handle. You can also program it to record your favorite show every week, day, or whatever it's scheduled to come on.

    Records on hard drive.

    Provides many options. Can be programmed to record shows similar to your preferences, without designating specific shows.

    Can "learn" your style of TV viewing.

    Don't have it, as wife and I don't watch the tube that much.
