Digital Video Recorders Save Relationships!

By Staff

Digital Video Recorders (DVR) save relationships, according to a new survey.

According to a report, some 79percent of 1,000 DVR owners reported that the technology has improved their relationship. The statistic was just one of many presented by NDS, a manufacturer of DVR technology, suggesting the machines are becoming increasingly integral in U.S. households.

DVRs were cited as the second most essential household technology item they can't live without, second only to the mobile phone. Among non-technological household items, DVR was beaten out only by washing machine and microwave oven.

"The results show how fast the DVR has become an indispensable part of many people's lives in the U.S. ...... It's one of those technologies that, once you use it, it makes you wonder how you coped before," the Mirror quoted Steve Tranter, vice president, broadband and interactive delivery, NDS Americas, as telling Hollywood Reporter.
