    I don't know what survey YOU took, but the one I took explicitly ASKED me BEFOREHAND if I wanted to answer personal/political questions.

    Those were some seriously bizarre political questions, though! I felt like my computer needed a Silkwood shower after I 'voted' for some of those people. :eek:

    You may want to re-read what I wrote. I said they "WERE" (as in past-tense) asking such questions that could not be skipped. They later IMPROVED the survey process by making them optional. The changes were put in place a few surveys ago.

    I suspect a lot of people did. It is good they made the change.

    Isn't the data kept anonymous like most surveys? Even if it isn't I really don't care whether they know my opinions about those questions. I answer surveys on the phone sometimes too. Especially during election time.

    That's how I feel too. I'll answer the questions. Always have. Maybe they are thinking about making a Donkey and an Elephant version to cater to either side of the aisle! We could be providing valuable input.

    It would be nice if they disclosed at the end of the survey why they asked the questions they do.

    Just because something says it is confidential, doesn't mean it is or will remain that way. Data can also be accidentally disclosed/stolen/hacked.

    That is the old "if you have nothing to hide" argument. I bet you would care if some types of answers made it to places you didn't expect. You might not care if TIVO knows certain things, but there is no guarantee it will stop there. Data privacy is a HUGE issue right now, and for good reasons.

    It reminded me of Stephen Colbert's 2 option question:

    George W. Bush.... Great President or the Greatest President?

    It reminded me of a presonality test I took at work some time ago. Trust me, this was developed by some PHD and the way you answered combinations of questions were far more important then the way you answered any individual question.

    These things don't bother me.

    LMAO, Hellfish!

    Bradleys - Yeah, I got the distinct impression that it was all about the combination of responses adding up to something more than any possible meaning of a given individual response. Not sure how that relates to Tivo services, but it doesn't bother me. I've been doing the surveys for a long time and will be happy to continue doing so.

    Same here regarding the political stuff. All my responses were geared toward the non obvious answers (outliers in my mind).:p
    I opted to refuse to answer the questions on whether or not I had voted in the past. That was irrelevant (IMO).

    And the mock election results are in......
    I was most interested in the Roku questions. Lots of interesting questions in this survey, Yes?
    Based on the survey in the comments section I listed the following as my priorities.
    • Cox VOD OnDemand access
    • Roku as a TiVo extender (a quick way to get TiVo, HBOGo and Amazon Prime to a second TV)
    • TiVo branded extender (IP-STB)
    • HBOGo access
    • Amazon Prime access
    • EPIXHD access

    One of the more interesting surveys in a LONG time. I would love to see some new content sources (HBOGo especially) and the ability to access my TiVo from a Roku or Apple TV as an extender. I am comfortable paying $101-$150 for an extender... I debated quite a bit about that price point. I was glad to see that all of the options did NOT have a subscription fee attached.

    Huh? Was Amazon Prime not one of your choices?

    What about HBO GO? I can watch for free even if I don't have cable?

    I had to go with 76-100. Reason: Other existing devices already hit this price point (like Apple TV) and would save TiVo the hardware dev work. It wouldn't make sense to me to pay more for a box that does TiVo only, when I could pay less for a box that does TiVo and more if there was an option. Plus, TiVo already makes an iOS app, update it to handle streaming, drop it on Apple TV, and done. Same with Android, then something like Roku. (Now somebody needs to build an Android based box like Apple TV so the whole thing can be streamlined to just two software platforms.)

    You may want to reread his post. He is talking about the streaming box pricing options.
