Microsoft Tries to Ban TiVo Imports



+ Add a Comment


Tivo has been around forever.  I have never noticed anything Microsoft-like in their product.  Tivo is the best DVR interface that I have ever used.  Microsoft makes the DVR OS/interface technology for all the crummy Comcast boxes.  They are terrible!  This sounds like extortion to me.




"The four patents in the ITC case relate to program schedules and selection, controlling the interface, and a way to restrict use of the DVR based on the program’s rating."

It looks like some BS-type patents they could sue anyone for.
