    This is the most ridiculous thing that I’ve ever heard! Dish came out with the DVR long before Tivo was around. In fact it was direct’s answer to dish’s DVR. I know this because I was a Dish retailer for almost 20yrs. Which means I was there in the beginning when Dish had gotten over their heads in debt and Bill Gates stepped in and saved them. The DVR was always Dish’s idea and as far as I’m concerend their greatest advancement along with the dual tuner which Tivo turned around and copied both. They should be sued not the other way around!
