TIVO, the original. Others copy it, and the original suffers, just like what happened to the MAC when windows came.

Hardly the original. Many others existed first including DISHPLAYERS.

Not exactly. The original Dishplayer line was the first integrated satellite receiver/digital video recorder to hit the market, but the first DVRs to hit the market were Replay TV and TiVo. They both came around at the same time, within weeks of each other back in 1999 and there is some controversy as to which one came out first, but usually the credit is given to Replay TV.
