TiVo adds captions to DVRs TiVo has started the process to bring closed captions to DVR boxes, filing a patent this month with the USPTO.
Enhanced Television (ETV) and other closed captioning technology will be used to deliver the data.

ETV metadata has been recently integrated into most cable broadcasts, and the new patent will give TiVo a way to deliver the data in a "more interactive method," says Electronista. The interactive menu will include the text, sound effects and a digital video.
