Folks, there's precious little to say about the upcoming DIRECTV TiVo-based device that hasn't already been said, but here's the thread for you to say it. There really is nothing new but if there is you'll read it here. Synopsis of common arguments: (in other words, this ground's already been trodden, do we have to go there again?) Many people like the TiVo interface, especially the list guide. Many people are equally fond of the DIRECTV interface. Many people think that TiVos are easier for them to use. Many people think that DIRECTV DVRs are easier for them to use. Standalone TiVo devices have many features that are appealing to people. No guarantee has been made that any feature from a standalone TiVo will make it to the DIRECTV TiVo. The new device will run on DIRECTV hardware, although we don't know how that will work (we have some ideas). TiVo, Inc. will develop the software for the device and seems to be solely responsible for the user experience. Ground Rules: DISCUSS THE TOPIC NOT EACH OTHER. This is not a free-for-all. Rudeness will not be tolerated. Remember that all forum rules are still in effect. Do not "bump" this thread. Other threads relating to the DirecTV TiVo-HD Receiver will be closed. If you harp on a particular point to the exclusion of others, your posts may be deleted. Further, we've learned that the new TiVo for DIRECTV will not have the upgraded user experience seen in the TiVo Premiere.
