Consumer interest in digital video recorders (DVRs) is gaining momentum, especially as the cable industry catches up to its satellite TV rivals by offering DVR-equipped set-top boxes.

"The success we've seen from TiVo and others helped to whet the (consumer's DVR) appetite for the cable industry," said Page Shaper, Charter Communications' director of new products.

Forrester Research projects the number of U.S. households with DVRs will grow from 3.5 million in 2003 to 6.5 million by the end of 2004. That estimate includes a small but growing number of consumer electronics makers, which are starting to incorporate DVR features into DVD players, DVD recorders, or other products.

In describing the fledgling DVR market, Forrester's industry analyst Josh Bernoff said: "The leap between having a DVR and not having one is a huge leap, but the leap between using a TiVo, Echostar, or a Scientific-Atlanta or Motorola box, is very small." (Associated Press)
