Patent Dispute Brewing over PVRs

Posted on 20 July 2005 by

Saw this little blurb over on PVRWire. Looks like the company Forgent Networks is filing a lawsuit over its Patent with the US Patent Office. (Number 6,285,746) From the PVRWire article, here is a clip of the patent:

A computer based television signal recording device is provided. This recording device allows for the recording of input streams onto a mass storage device such as a computer hard drive. A user interface is provided which has a list of the recorded television signals and the user can select for playback any of the listed recorded television signals.

You can read the full press release from fogent. Will this threaten TiVo or other software/hardware makers? I surely hope not.
