    Not sure I know what revolked (sic) means...

    You may recall that the USPTO once ruled that TiVo's Time Warp patent is invalid.

    The European Patent Office (EPO) process allows an appeal of the patent revocation.

    TiVo disagrees with the ruling, plans to appeal, and no outcome impacts current European business as TiVo's European partners are worried about competition, results, and customer satisfaction -- not patents.

    Looks like you know EXACTLY what revoked means, Shill. :confused:

    Maybe you should go back into your hole Tim TiVo and bring this up again when the EPO issues the final rejection of the appeal.

    He knows what "revoked" means, just not the meaning of "revolked," which is what you originally stated. ;)

    Why? Doesn't change the fact you completely ignore the fact that the patent has been revoked (happy now?) and most likely the reason your settlement number was off by $1.4 BILLION!, Shill :eek:

    It looks like the X2 Cloud by Comcast might be the way to record programs. I just wish Comcast would let you access the stored programs on their DVR's by your computer. I am hoping that the X2 platform might enable that. I have a TivoHD, a Comcast DVR and their box for playing back the DVR from any other TV in the house. I prefer the way the TivoHD handles things, especially the 30 sec jump forward.

    Uh, no thanks - Comcast recently had a multi-day outage on their X1 platform that disabled not just watching cloud-based recordings but also your local ones. Not to mention that with cloud-based DVRs you're back in the boat of having your stuff disappear for no reason, just like VOD with 'viewing windows'.

    I want full control over what I want to record and watch, thanks.

    It seems nice until Comcast forces you to watch commercials. It's the next logical step.

    It's already being considered:

    Probably unskippable commercials as well like the Hulu+ crap that I will never use.
