TIVO pokonalo Dish Network EchoStar

Recommended Posts

A jednak nie mialem racji piszac pare miesiecy temu ze TIVO to juz historia.
Wlasnie okazalo sie ze TIVO wygralo proces z Dish Networkiem o stosowanie DVR w odbiornikach tego ostatniego.

[color="blue"]TiVo is a pioneer in Digital Video Recorder (DVR) products and services. TiVo is a relatively small company whose entire business centers around expanding and advancing DVR functionality and technology. TiVo introduced DVRs to consumers and protected its inventions with patents. EchoStar is a very large media company that provides DVR products and services in direct competition with TiVo. Unlike TiVo partners such as DIRECTV and Comcast, EchoStar has refused to enter into an agreement with TiVo which left TiVo no choice but to defend its intellectual property in federal court.

After several years of expensive litigation, in April 2006, EchoStar's DVR products were found by a jury to be infringing one of TiVo's patents. TiVo is pleased that a federal court has recognized that TiVo's business will be irreparably harmed if EchoStar were allowed to continue to infringe TiVo's patent. Any shutdown of DVR functionality for existing DISH Network customers is entirely and directly due to EchoStar's infringement of TiVo's patent rights. It is unfortunate that DISH Network's actions have put its customers in the awkward position of potentially having DVR functionality disabled but DISH Network customers who want to ensure uninterrupted DVR service can get DVR products and services from TiVo and its partners.

Oznacza to ze Dish musi w ciagu 30 dni wylaczyc funkcje nagrywania programow na twardym dysku. Pare milionow klijetow Disha nie bedzie juz moglo nagrywac swojich ulubionych programow. Trudno mi jest teraz przewidziec co sie stanie ale zapewne przyhamuje to ekspansje Disha.

Natomiast dla milosnikow HDTV i nagrywania sobie takich programow na wlasny urzytek TIVO przygotowuje we wrzesniu premiere swojego nowego urzadzenia TIVO3.


i widok z tylu:


Programy HDTV i to nawet te kodowane jako MPEG4 bedzie mozna nagrywac na zewnetrzny twardy dysk SATA. Programy HDTV dostepne oczywiscie z Air (anteny dachowej) jak tez z kablowki. Odbiornik bedzie obslugiwal dowolna kompanie kablowa po wlozeniu odpowiedniej karty odkodowujacej.

Oki to teraz pytanie na które może nie którzy znają odpowiedź a ja nie i już B)

Czy np. jakbym sobie sprowadził takiego TIVO przydałby mi się u nas do czegoś czy byłby bezużyteczny? Tam się da włożyć każdą kartę? Moduły dostępu można użyć?

Np taką o ITI : > O ile się ją wogle da wykorzystać na innym tunerze niż orginał ADB.
