TiVo And Dish Continue Court Slapfight Over DVRs

A Federal Court of Appeals has ordered Dish to cease operation of a series of DVRs which TiVo said violated its patents. In a slightly petulant-sounding statement, Dish said it plans to appeal and that there weren’t that many of the infringing DVRs in service anyway.

Chances are you won’t be affected by the change, but in case your old Dish DVR just croaks for no apparent reason, it might be this.
