1. noun- A very capable digital video recorder that can record more than one TV/Cable/Satellite show at once. This device requires no tape nor disk, but requires a monthly or lifetime subscription to work. It allows you to record, pause, fast forward, rewind, etc., with ease. It uses subscriber feedback and recording history to make "Tivo suggestions", or recordings you haven't asked for that Tivo (the company) believes that you will like. Likely the one thing that scares television advertizers the most.
2. noun- The company who engineered and marketed the Tivo device.
3. verb- The act of using a Tivo machine to record a show.
My Tivo only cost me $99, but saved me a ton on videotapes.
Tivo had my Tivo record Fahrenheit 51 last night. I'm really surprised, but I like that show!
Mom, I told you I wanted to Tivo Crankyankers last night!
