The company really has lost relevance over the years, but the technology hasn’t. This one seems to streamline all options onto one system, which is good for the consumer. It won’t be long until first-run movies are added to that list.

I like the idea of the Tivo unit, and the fact that it supports sending your captures to the network PC for burning but hate the idea of paying any extra fees just to use it.
For the longest time it was about the only non cable box that could do HD premium channels and support the cable card standards but that will be changing soon.
I still might consider a unit if I could get a good enough deal on one with a lifetime package though.

After 7 years and two boxes, I’ve held off upgrading my Tivo, I don’t mind the $13.00 a month, but if they start increasing the on screen commercials, I’ll be looking at the cable companies PVR offer…You listening TIVO

That is what the 30 second skip is for.

TIVO is like Kleenex or Xerox, a nice convenient generic description, but not necessarily the most cost effective solution.
