This comprehensive 2007 study is the product of three of The Carmel Group's in-house databases. First is The Carmel Group's historical archive, dating back to 1997-1998, when The Carmel Group was the first consultant/analyst globally to produce industry projections concerning the U.S. Digital Video Recorder (DVR) industry. Second is the combined historical data compiled from two surveys conducted in 2005 and 2006. 

The data collected by The Carmel Group in May 2005 was based upon surveys of 2,586 U.S. respondents; the 2006 data collected by The Carmel Group was based upon surveys of nearly 1,800 U.S. respondents in January and February of that year. And finally, we focus on the current data from almost 2,200 U.S. respondents, from our 2007 survey that was run during February-March 2007. In both the 2006 and 2007 surveys covering the DVR and related industries, 76% were identified as DVR-Users, while 24% were Non DVR-Users. Also, in both those years, The Carmel Group received responses from respondents representing every state of the union and several U.S. territories. In addition, The Carmel Group interviewed dozens of key industry participants, focused on the developers and manufacturers of existing DVR products and services.
