Digital video recorder users tend to think the technology is helpful in maintaining a healthy relationship.

According to a survey conducted by technology solution provider NDS, 79 percent of DVR owners report that using digital memory technology for recording television programming has improved relations with their significant other. "The results show how fast the DVR has become an indispensable part of many people's lives in the U.S.," said NDS Vice President Steve Tanter.

The survey also found that over 80 percent of American DVR owners "can't live without it."

We can only hope that the percentage would be as high if those surveyed were asked the same question about their partner.
