    Verizon plays different commercials depending upon if you use their STB vs using a TiVO. I found that on the VZ STB when a "local" commercial came on I had something totally different being played on the TiVO tuned to the same channel.

    Not sure which commercial I prefer, the local one of the generic one that seems to be repeated every 15 minutes or so.

    Do/should we care? Not being snarky, but just wondering. Tivos already get different marketing with the "thumbs up" pop-up that appears from time to time.

    The question now is, will TiVO be able to inject their own commercials in?

    There is actually a setting on the FiOS website about this. States something alone the lines about how it tailors localized ads to the viewer. You can opt out if you'd like. I don't have the link handy, but I followed it in a different FiOS forum a few weeks back.
