Is this proof of how boring NASCAR is as the thread has degenerated into a DVR/PVR debate?

















But then there is this:

PVR vs DVR

The terms PVR and DVR have been floating around for years. But few people really know which is which and what each term is referring to. PVR stands for Personal Video Recorder while DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder. The former emphasize the ability to personalize the device and how it operates while the latter emphasis that it captures into a digital format.

Fortunately, the differences virtually end there as both these terms are simply referring to the same type of device that is used in capturing video from different source; the main source would be cable TV. As previously stated, the term PVR was coined to emphasize the ability to select shows and programs based on your personal preference. Much later, with the advent of HD and digital TV, it became more pressing for manufacturers to indicate that their products are able to work with the newer digital sets as well as accept the new digital format. For this reason, the term DVR came into wide use as a replacement for PVR. For some time after the initial introduction of the term DVR, there were a lot of products that were either labeled as PVR or DVR. This lead to a moderate amount of confusion on which one is superior and what features can be found on each. This has been aggravated further by the fact that PVRs/DVRs do not often have the same feature set. Their features largely vary from one manufacturer to another and even from one product to the next. This problem has eventually gone away as more manufacturers begin to use DVR to identify their products.


Currently, PVR has largely become obsolete due to the wide adoption of the term DVR. You would probably not see any device that is still labeled as PVR devices. Despite this fact, a lot of users still wish to know the difference between them before going out to buy one for their home systems. It is safe to say that regardless of what you choose, what’s important is the list of features that are included with each device.

To be honest, Comcast actually does call my DVR a DVR. It's my Logitech remote that asks me, Is the PVR on? Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

I know, right!
And, well, there you go.

I always though PVR was built into a decoder whereas a DVR was a stand alone device that just recorded whatever feed it received, like a VCR (if you're young enough to remember those, I still have one ).

Ahh, good times.

I remeber my parents bought our first VHS VCR in about 1980. It was a SHARP and the remote receiver was wired It stood next to the TV and looked like modern day external hard drive. Features included slow and fast forward (half and double speed). Both with sound

It was a bit early for home theatre so I guess they didn't sell. Also it cost a small fortune. We bought it at half price and payed $1250
(As a comparison, my dad bought a new car (small, simple Mitsubishi family sedan) in 1983 which was $16.000 with all extras back then)
