This would all be so much easier if there was just a DirecTV CableCARD...
The technologies are not compatible.
It would be much easier if there was a PCIe / USB 2.0 / Ethernet Dual tuner DirecTV tuner card.

Since I'm of the mind that a computer is the perfect Home Entertainment solution and I really love W7 I can't help but agree. TiVo's fine, but for quite a bit of the advanced options a computer comes into play. I guess I just don't understand why folks limit themselves to one DVR platform.
Agreed. I'd like an HD standalone that could be shifted to different rooms, as I see fit.
With 5 DVRs, if I have to switch inputs, go to another remote, check some setting, or otherwise lose 5 minutes, I've got 2 or 3 hours of programming to watch!!
If it is the dual core version with built-in flash support then the premiere experience could probably be ported to it.
TiVo is working on a sat box for Canal in Europe, so they already have a start in the right direction. My guess is that it also uses fairly current Broadcom chipsets.
DirecTV could probably leverage off of that if they decide they want to keep working with TiVo going forward.
I think its all about the security technology that DirecTV uses that would make tivo avoid ever trying to develop their own hardware, and there is no reason too anyway, since many of the same components are ones tivo would use anyway.
