Huh? It's not similar *at* *all*. The Fury 4K and Firestorm 2X are
film recorders. You feed them film, at 1 frame per second for 35mm
film, and they digitize it.
TiVo and MythTV are PVRs. You feed them a video signal and they record
it, which may involve digitizing the signal and may not (e.g., if you
have a DirecTV TiVo, the signal comes in digitized). They also deal
with scheduling recordings using data from a program guide.
