    You bet it is! Just a couple of days worth of "Word of mouth" advertising.

    I so badly want to get DirecTV for the NFL Ticket and would buy 2-3 DTiVo's if they had HMO - for the web scheduling only pretty much, and the other stuff is kind of cool too.

    I will not become a DirecTV subscriber until this happens as this is showing me what their customer support is like.

    I'm lucky #597.

    Is there a thread or page somewhere (I have not yet scoured and searched every nook and cranny of this site) that contains DirecTV's official position on this issue, or a report of their official position? EDIT: Never mind, I found some.

    Also, does someone have specific e-mail addresses at DTV we can use, rather than a web form or generic address? EDIT: Never mind, I found that posting those addresses are not allowed here, for reasons with which I respectfully disagree.

    I find it outrageous that DTV is not interested in helping us out here. We're begging to pay them more money!

    There are over 700 now.... I signed it.

    BTW, I called and asked to speak to someone about it. I got forwarded to a Tivo help guy. He said he didn't know about it, so I told him the URL to tivo's web page that described the HMO.

    He said, "I can't pull up internet pages here at work." to which I replied, well, write this down and look it up when you get home... he said he would.

    So I got him to forward me back to customer service, and I asked her to write in the call log that I want to subscribe to Tivo's HMO with my HDVR2 box. She indicated that her manager had "heard of it and knew that DTV was investigating what to do".

    I then filled out the webform asking "Can I get Tivo's HMO on my HDVR2 box? " I included a URL to the Tivo page. The response was that I would have to wait until Tivo launches it and then ask Tivo if I can do it on my HDVR2!

    Here's to hoping.

    I wrote a letter to TechTV (specifically, the Fresh Gear show) in regards to the entire HMO situation. They have featured many PVRs over the years, so HMO is definitely something they will be interested in. Hopefully if they decide to air something they'll describe DTV's and Tivo's new relationship and some of the effects of the new agreement. I gave them the link to the petition.

    #751 here. I'm going to pass this around to the HDVR2 owners that I know.

    Just an update - the petition has over 900 signatures on it, and is growing fast! Thanks to all of you who have signed and passed this around. I posted this message in the thread going on in the Tivo Coffeehouse Forum, but wanted to update this original thread as well.

    As far as submitting the petition to Mr. Baele, and DirecTV, I am keeping daily track of the signatures, and will wait until there is a significant decrease before submitting. This should be an excellent compromise between building the maximum amount of signatures and submitting it in a reasonable amount of time.

    But remember, this is not my petition - it belongs to all of us. Feel free to write to Mr. Baele and DirecTV referencing this petition at your leisure. I intend to send him actual written correspondence as well as email to their public relations and customer service departments when I feel the time is right, and I encourage all of you to do the same.


    Thanks again for all of the help and support!

    Bob

    I'm glad my idea took off and thank you JD9900 for putting it in motion! Let me know if I can be of help other than emailing DirecTV.
