    Sony has...

    well i know for a fact that sony was
    developing
    these things (high end digital tv's and
    digital
    vcr's) at least as far back as '96.
    there is no
    "copying" here; the idea is
    clear.

    now the TiVo
    stuff, on the other hand - i'm
    rather dubious of
    that. how many people will
    be buying a digital vcr
    that can only be used
    as long as you keep up your
    $10/mo payments?

    • Are you also misinformed...the GRAND
      ALLIANCE...was a group of companys that developed,invented and
      intstituted HDTV, the DIGITAL US version, the standard for
      NORTH AMERICA, not the ANALOG Asian, obsolete,
      version....it was made up of PHILIPS,NBC,RCA,ZENITH, and a few
      others(even though they are now only a name, owned by the
      much larger than SONY LG ELECTRONICS ,Goldstar). then
      AT&T, General Instrument and a few others with their
      ideas merged the two features, that became the HDTV now
      on the market. Sony had NOTHING to do with HDTV...it
      will probably appear in ADS that they had something to
      do with it....they did nothing in HDTV....What do
      you think a "digital" tv is?...TiVo is in fact
      ANOTHER amazing development...notasony.
