trying to change the subject here to something other than "will guide service continue after tuesday".


what do you think of the brand name 'ReplayTV'?


people have discussed here on this forum many times before how the TiVo name gets noticed and recognized more often because it's so simple to say. so, "what the hell", i thought, "why don't they just call it Replay? oh, wait, you can't brand something 'Replay'! it's an official dictionaryized word."


still they could call it the 'Replay DVR' and everybody'd call it Replay. think about it: it's two syllables as opposed to four. much easier. when i say 'ReplayTV' to someone, i get the feeling that when i finish the word, they're already sound asleep.


anyway, vote on the poll because it has zimbabwe in it. :p

How about ReplayVideo? Then, just shorten it to RiVo. That should eliminate all confusion!

I am glad they shortened the name...


Back in '97, the company was doing a great amount of PR... We had the (name escapes me) CEO on our radio talk show. He was touting the features and launch dates, yada yada... Sounded like a great concept, however, the name is what stuck with me!


He called it the Playyourfavoriteshowsagainandagainandagainifyouwanttobecause thisgizmowillrecordshowsandstorethemforatimethatisconvenient foryoutowatchthemTV.


Ahhh, reminiscing...

So is it an addiction, or a sexually transmitted disease? :)


I didn't see the name connection at first. I was thinking in terms of DVD, not physical sciences. :D

That should go over like a Led Zeppelin.


The people in Alviso won't like it.

How about CommercialessTV?


Of course, if we shortened that it would be either CommTV (which wouldn't be very discriptive) or CTV (which would get confused with a County TV station).

ReplayTV is fine. All my friends call it Replay anyway. They always ask if I "Replay-ed" the show when they know I've been busy while something I really like was on.
