While I've been here from the beginning (registration was not required to post until maybe 2004), I haven't paid much attention to administration matters since "the schism", but I was under the impression that this forum had been sold to AVS, which also owned the Tivo Community Forum and that they had in turn been sold to someone or something called Huddler, so I had just assumed that they were all on the same bulletin board hosting software, but I see that Tivo Community Forum is still on vBulletin and AVS is of course on Huddler. Not that I have any basis for opining that any one system is better than any other, but will all three forums eventually be on the same software?
Not sure what this has to do with the thread topic. But in any case...
I, David Bott, founded AVSForum.com and TiVoCommunity.com and bought DBSTalk.com year and years back. (Also founded Home Theater Cruise and DBNet Consulting)
TiVoCommunity was sold log ago another forum operator.
AVSForum was sold to Huddler back in Oct 2011 and I just stepped down as a consultant/advisor for them a few months back.
DBSTalk I still operate and hope to build it like I did AVS by being a grass roots area for new product and community feedback, support and all in all being excited about this digital life.
So nope...all are separate and have been for some time.
