    They have picked up the pace quite a bit over the last 6 to 9 months.

    Well, if you say so. I don't consider finishing the HDUI almost 3 years after it first shipped to be speedy (if they deliver the remaining stuff this year), but it's certainly been better lately.

    Still missing a lot of useful apps though that many others have, as the engadget review mentioned.

    I have detected a pulse at TiVo, but it does not seem as though they are taking things seriously enough. When the market is slow and stagnant, it is the time to double down, make big investments in the business and try to dramatically improve.

    They only seem to have waken up and "smelled the coffee" sometime in the last 6-12 months.

    The entire stodgy, slow, cable delivery industry is ripe for a new product to come in and shake things up in a big way.

    Yep - Comcast in particular loves to mention all the great technical trials of new DVR tech etc. that they are doing, but very little of it hits the road. At least they're smart enough to partner with others that actually have product out there to do what they can't (i.e. Xbox and now Tivo).
