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!

Revolutionary DVR technology that stopped being impressive around 2007 when most cable companies developed their own versions that aren't nearly as expensive.

Increasingly less impressive with the takeover of internet streaming, which is making DVR technology obsolete.
Yo I'm gonna TiVo that show so I can watch it later.

The fuck is this? 2006? Watch it on Netflix, grandpa.

A friggin incredible DVR that can record two shows at once & will auto-record shows that it thinks you will like! Im my opinion it created the whole 'pause live TV' feature & other cable providers caught on. Like I said you can Pause, rewind, fast foward & record live TV & store it on the system's hardrive. The newer boxes are the best since they come with WiFi & ethernet capabilities which enables you to be able to watch YouTube on your TV. They also run a modefied version of Linux & has the ability to go into a Kernel Panic which is what you don't want lol.
I love the TiVo & I also love Linux...
