I wish it would just die completely. Then make a web based version that allows streaming and manual transfers (maybe a plugin will be required like Slingbox). For displaying pictures and home videos, it should allow streaming from mobile devices using their existing app. I think we are at a point with MRS, that the number of people using TiVo Desktop to archive shows is small. They should keep the same API available for third party apps but the hog of an app, TiVo Desktop should die off.
