How did Tivo get it's name? What is the derivation of this word?

I know Tivo was started by ex-Silicon Graphics guys.. but I don't know how they came up with the name TiVo.. Do you?

I know Jim Barton and Mike Ramsey pretty well. Mike and I had the same SGI orientation session for new employees in 1986 and worked with Jim. I don't work for TiVo though.

Here's what I posted several weeks ago to answer this question on Yahoo Answers:

The original company name was Teleworld.

The name TiVo was created by Michael Cronan of Cronan Design. He liked the sound of name of the band Devo which is short for devolution and thought the next generation T.V. should have a name that could be linked to a new revolution or evolution so TiVolution.
