Have you ever heard someone say the
y were going to Tivo a program and
wondered what they meant? HD Tivo i
s a term used to describe a high de
finition digital video recorder, wh
ich permits the owner to record tel
evision programming and store it to
 an internal hard disk for later vi

HD Tivo units function much like a
VCR, which permits users to record
programs onto a videotape. The mode
rnized form, however, is HD Tivo. T
his unit is not only beneficial for
 recording, however, as it is also
capable of pausing and/or rewinding
 a program already in progress. If,
 for instance, you have to step out
 of the room for a moment, you can
pause the show and resume play when
 you reenter the room. The convenie
nce of HD Tivo is unmistakable, whi
ch is why many entertainment buffs
own this new video recording equipm
ent and wouldn’t think of turning o
n their TV without it.
Some HD Tivo units allow individual
s to specify certain programs to re
cord based on specific criteria, in
cluding program title, actor, genre
, time, etc. This availability depe
nds upon location and service, but
is often beneficial to those who sc
hedule future recordings ahead of t
ime.

HD Tivo products have been manufact
ured by industry-leading companies,
 including Philips, Toshiba, Sony a
nd others. In order to use Tivo, in
dividuals are required to subscribe
 to a monthly service, which genera
lly costs approximately $10.00 to $
15.00 per month. Lifetime subscript
ion plans, which were previously of
fered by Tivo, have since been disc
ontinued in place of a new program
allowing customers to receive the u
nit at no cost in exchange for prep
aid service.

When subscribing to any service, in
cluding HD Tivo, it is important to
 carefully read the service contrac
t and understand the service for wh
ich you are paying. The monthly cos
ts, service and cancellation polici
es should be clearly outlined in an
y contract. Any questions should be
 asked prior to signing of the cont
ract and/or exchange of any payment
. If a prepaid amount is required,
it is unlikely that a consumer woul
d be permitted to cancel their serv
ice during that time and still rece
ive a refund. However, this possibi
lity should be discussed with a Tiv
o specialist. Along with the unit i
tself, consumers will likely receiv
e an owner’s manual and detailed in
structions on how to operate their
unit. As with any new technology, i
t may take some time to adapt to th
e features. By carefully reading th
e manual and paying close attention
 to the instructions of the represe
ntative, you should be able to Tivo
 in no time.
