DVR is now a more popular term than VCR or PVR

According to

29m for DVR
21.6m for VCR
11.9m for PVR

However the UK seem a bit behind:
on from UK only:
952k DVR
1.03m VCR
908k PVR

Should UK Digital Video Recorders be called PVRs or should this term be reserved for learning/smart recorders like TiVo and ReplayTV?

PVR in India is a chain of cinemas
PVR in Mexico is an airport
So I'm guessing they use the term DVR instead :) uses all 4 terms: DVR, PVR and DTR (digital television recorder) and HDR (hard disk or high definition recorder?)
