What is the Difference Between a DVD Recorder and TiVo?

We all loathe to miss our favourite television programs and movies; and basically both TiVo and DVD recorders help us rectify this difficulty. However, they are both quite different pieces of hardware and frankly their functionality is a little confusing.
