I just ran across an interesting article in Electronic Design about TiVo. http://www.elecdesig...0&extension=pdf I found it interesting that 45% of the TiVo Subscribers were direct TV customers. This means that roughly 225,000 thousand Direct Tivo Users given that TiVo has 500,000 subscribers.

If D* has 12,000,000 subscribers which if I remember is correct that means only less than 2% of D* subscribers are Direct TiVo.

It's always good to be part of the top 2% :)

Since I own 2 DirecTiVos, I must be in the top 1% :D

If the DTiVo vendors had not had a shortage of machines (and then dragged their as* on the DirectTiVo series 2) the #s would be alot higher.

I wonder if they count multiple SA machine subs more than once (since each subscription is dependant on the machine not the person). If so how many multiple DTiVo owners are there. Every DTiVo owner I know either have more than one machine or wished they had more than one machine.
