Quantum stays tight with TiVo


Hard-drive supplier Quantum Corp. has renewed its deal to supply disk storage to personal-video-recorder (PVR) firm TiVo for its Personal TV service. The agreement extends the Milpitas, Calif.-based Quantum's preferred-provider relationship with TiVo and its OEMs.

The two companies have been working together since 1997, and TiVo launched its first PVR product using Quantum's QuickView audio/video recording technology, which allows viewers to pause live broadcasts and instantly access pre-recorded programs. Quantum also supplies hard drives to TiVo competitor Replay TV.
