Bay Area-based TiVo had a legal victory Thursday when a federal appeals court sided with the company in its patent infringement lawsuit against rival Dish Network.

TiVo pioneered digital video recorder technology.

TiVo officials say the decision means the company can begin collecting about $300 million in damages from Dish.

TiVo has also sued AT&T and Verizon for allegedly infringing on certain DVRpatents.

Dish says it plans to appeal the ruling.
