Hartenstein Leaves TiVo Board


DirecTV Group Inc. vice chairman Eddy Hartenstein has resigned from TiVo Inc.’s board of directors.

The digital-video-recorder manufacturer said Hartenstein wants to dedicate more time to his DirecTV responsibilities.

“While I regret that my other obligations prevent me from fulfilling the duties of a TiVo director, I look forward to continuing the strong business relationship between DirecTV and TiVo -- one that continues to benefit both companies and the home-entertainment industry as a whole,” Hartenstein said in a prepared statement.
