    And everyone that violated their NDA was wrong so it's time to drop the discussion on it...

    :D

    Tivo has stock? As of today, the stock is $9.98 with an EPS of -0.55. Triple Ply Charmin would be a better investment. They hit $40 in 2000, but have been a < $10 stock since 2001.

    Tivo is just another in a long line of companies that were first with an awesome idea, but got arrogant / mismanaged early on and as a result failed to execute long term.

    The DirecTivo (if it ever comes out) isn't going to have much of an effect on their bottom line.

    Despite a second year of "no show" at CES (at least a public one)....

    The predictions of several DBSTalkers seems to be consistent with this latest report today on MediaBiz (Evening Bridge):

    Good question. My guess is no since DIRECTV will be selling/marketing. TiVo will probably have a press release since it will be an "it's about time" moment.

    This was my thinking also. I don't see it happening, but will be curious to see how it is unveiled.

    Based off the one interview, the rep from TiVo said DirecTV would be the ones to announce the features so I don't know really how they could unless DirecTV signed off on it.

    It exists, its in testing, it supports MPEG4, it will work with DirecTV's content, and its real enough that it should (finally) arrive mid-year 2011 or sooner. Those things we know if you assemble the information that has been publicly posted.

    Beyond that...we return to speculation with some wait & see sprinkled in... :D:lol:

    Yep, it's real and lagging behind current TiVo technology. What a waste.

    As long as everyone realizes it's pretty much the HR10-250 .. with SAT HD capability added, I think everyone will be happy. They'll either be rejoicing in the return or sticking with what they've got.

    What we don't need is a lot of unrealistic expectations as to what this product is going to be. There has been a number of people who have stated that all they want is MPEG4 on their HR10-250 and they'd be happy. Now it's time for those folks to put their money where their mouth is .. unless of course they've changed their mind. :p
