Back in March when Cablevision first announced plans to create a centralized DVR, we mentioned that Time Warner had tried to do something quite similar three years ago... only to have the concept neutered after a bunch of television executives threatened Time Warner with lawsuits. So, it wasn't surprising at all for those same execs to get pissed off and then sue Cablevision over the plan -- even though it seems to only make their content more valuable. However, a new player has jumped into the fray and sued Cablevision: Time Warner. It's obviously the TV side of Time Warner, but it certainly is interesting to see how the company's opinion seems to depend on whether or not they're the ones offering the network-based DVR.
