Philips HDR110 (TiVo DVR)

by | Mar 31, 1999

 TiVo launches the first consumer DVR device. Like the VCRs before it, the device is primarily used to time-shift television programming. But unlike VCRs, they are digital and allow the pausing and rewinding of live TV. This first TiVo device, the HDR110, had a 14GB hard drive which could record up to 14 hours of content.
