Tivo, Inc. is the name of the company that developed the DVR. Originally it could only record from analog cable and off-the-air (OTA) antenna inputs. DirecTV contracted with Tivo to build a DVR that had integrated DirecTV tuners so it could be used with a DBS dish and access card for DirecTV reception and recording. Hence the name DirecTivo (DirecTV + Tivo). The latest generation of Tivos can record from digital cable and Verizon FIOS that use QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) technology for broadcasting the channels in digital format.
