Both TiVO DVR and DIRECTV DVR allow you to record, pause, and rewind LIVE TV. While the TiVO DVR comes with all the exclusive TiVO search features, like Swivel™ Search and WishLists®, the DIRECTV DVR is more powerful and has many features you won't find on a TiVo receiver, such as:
- Faster speed and more recording capacity (depending on generation of TiVo you previously had. Example: RCA DVR40= 40GB hard drive or 40 hours of recording space.)
- Easier Recording: To record a show just press the record button once and press it twice to record an entire season of your favorite shows.
- Bookmarks: So you can highlight your favorite spots in a program and reach them again quickly.
- DIRECTV Active: Featuring local weather forecast, horoscopes, and more.
Please note: TiVOHD DVR is NOT compatible with the DIRECTV Whole-Home service.
