    A friend is buying an HDTV this weekend and wants to know if there is a TIVO-like product that can record HDTV programs (or will TIVO do it)?

    TiVo can't record HD. I don't know of any personal video recorders that can.

    If you have a PC, you can use either a Hipix or AccessDTV card to record HD material to the hard disk. It's not quite as convenient as Tivo, but it works pretty well. You can only record off-air signals, however, not satellite. See www.digitalconnection.com for more info
