I have been a directv subscriber for the last 5 years, and have had a double duty phillips manufactured dvr. The box itself has the logo and the name TiVo. The remote control for the unit has the TiVo logo on it.

Not only can you record two different channels at the same time (it will need two lines from your dish to the unit), but it will let you watch a previously recorded show while you are recording two shows.

Want to have some real fun with it? Run the video out to a dvd burner, and you can direct burn any show that you want to save.

Have fun with it.

Yeah, this is an odd article. I think this is TiVo's standalone recorder perhaps. When they first came out before selling off to DirecTV, they were dual tuner/recorders.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
