ReplayTv lost the living room not too long ago to Tivo, they went ‘soft’ with PC DVR application hope to turn the business around. That didn’t work either. D&M Holdings Inc sold ReplayTV Assets to DirecTV today and that marked another buyout on ReplayTV’s technology.

ReplayTV was acquired by SONICblue in 2001, later went bankrupt and sold to D&M Holdings and now ends up with nation’s largest satellite provider DirectTV. No financial terms of the deal were disclosed but D&M Holdings will remain the operator of the existing service contracts for current ReplayTV subscribers. DirecTV will assume most of the other assets of the brand company.
