Well, we finally made it to Friday. :)

An article appeared in Bloomberg about how Tivo has an uphill battle in the Digital Video Recorder market. Investors are saying that TiVo's reliance on DirecTV for the majority of its new subscribers is a threat to its growth. Half of TiVo's customers are DirecTV users. More about that HERE.

Well that's no surprise. Why would people want to pay $12.99 a month for a single tuner recording service?? That price is ridiculous compared with Directv's $4.99 fee per account plus dual tuner feature.

But a lot of people dont have DirecTV and they are not doing well there.
I never cared for all the signatures that insult posters with other points of view.
