    My suspicion is that you'd be disappointed with any info you would get. I'm convinced there will be a TiVo device at some point, but I'm not sure anyone but Syzygy will want it... Maybe not even him :)

    I can't tell if this applies to the DirecTV build and DECA (their version of MoCA) or not, or not, but at least TiVo reveals they're working on MoCA.

    MoCA is just the networking component .. DIRECTV is part of the RVU alliance which has client/server functionality for remote connections (CES 2010). I wonder if TiVo is going to be using RVU, using a competing technology or rolling their own.

    I don't think TiVo would choose RVU only because I believe they want to control their own UI and if I remember correctly with RVU you have to use the UI of the other device.

    Not necessarily....

    Tivo could adapt their own version of the RVU standard....similar to how DirecTV launched DECA.

    At this point what we're not hearing from TiVo is more interesting than what we are hearing.

    I just want to know when D* will start using the ReplayTV technology they purchased back in 2007 to recognize existing ReplayTVs on one's home network...

    Yeah I tend to agree with that. It was much more likely a purchase of intellectual property, intended to stave off lawsuits.

    I'd agree with Never as well. I don't think anyone at any level ever thought the Replay purchase had anything to do with actual implementation.

    :(

    Here's some food for thought...

    When I run DVArchive on my Mac, I look at the Messages, I see the following...

    07/17 19:09:48 ERROR: REPLAY_DEVICE:: Unable to fetch details for DVR -- Operation timed out
    07/17 19:09:48 ERROR: Error processing served request from DVR 10.0.1.xxx -- Unable to fetch DVR Details for 10.0.1.xxx:80
    07/17 19:11:03 ERROR: REPLAY_DEVICE:: Unable to fetch details for DVR -- Operation timed out

    07/17 19:12:18 ERROR: Error processing served request from DVR 10.0.1.zzz -- Unable to fetch DVR Details for 10.0.1.zzz:80

    DVR 10.0.1.xxx & zzz are my assigned IPs for the HR20 & HR23 and DVR 10.0.1.yyy is for the H21.

    Be curious to see what would be needed...

    :D

    Would it help if I drive to Alviso, Ca and pick one up?

    I used to drive right by their HQ frequently .. Haven't worked down that way in a long time, though.

    Or maybe already:) I am not talking about actually work with a Replay brand DVR, but implement some of the technology in a very limited way in the DirecTV DVRs. I have read the ReplayTV DVR patent and the description, the technology did not appear any less efficient than the TiVo's, and likely easy to implement.

    Not saying they have used it, but having some elements of the ReplayTV invention worked into the DirecTV DVRs would not be a shocker to me.

    Not yet known.

    In fact, not much is known period....info on the rumored and announced new HD Tivobox has been highly silent for a while now...the only info consisting of "its not going to be ready for a bit yet".
