I say highly unlikely. It has been stated that this new DirecTivo will work with the current DirecTV networking infrastructure. Thus it will support whatever the DirecTV MRV is. DirecTV would certainly want *all* their receivers to talk to each other, Tivo or not. Maybe. I say NO. Again, not part of the DirecTV infrastructure. I'd say most likely YES. I say NO. Once again Tivo desktop is not part of the DirecTV infrastructure. I'm sure it will support the DirecTV media share and VOD though. NO. Not unless DirecTV supports it. Besides, it's easy enough to get Netflix to the DirecTV DVRs today so probably not. YES. Virtually every single set top box out there from cable, fiber and sat has picture in guide. The Tivo's, until the Comcast box, were the only ones that didn't do it. Well, the odds of mass appeal are low anyway no matter how many "YES" you have. The general user will be confused by any feature set comparison and if it costs more, even just $5, they will just go with whatever is cheapest. That has been the case for 10 years and won't change any time soon.
