    And what gets people attention. The previews that Tivo downloads for you could be analyzed and fine tuned so that people will view them...

    It is good to see that the Nielsen people recognize the importance of PVRs...

    I wonder if there is an "opt out" of this? I don't like the idea of TiVo or nielsen monitoring my activity.
