    That stuff is still there, though it's definitely not the same as the recently launched "Crackle Channel" on Roku (which was the first I heard anything about Crackle).

    Yeah, (the new) Crackle on the iPad is pretty darn sweet. I was also able to jailbreak my AppleTV (2nd gen,) install XBMC, and then install a Crackle plug-in. Navigation's a pain, but it does in fact work.

    Cool I will have to check it out on the iPad. I wonder if it is even incorporated into the search on the HD UI. It isn't one of the providers you can disable so my guess is no.

    Yeah, but this popped up on the Hulu site a day or two ago. Previously this link didn't work ... looks like Hulu Plus on the TiVo Premiere is right around the corner.

    Under TiVo on the Hulu Plus devices page it says "Coming Soon"--other devices say "Coming Later This Year".

    Hulu Plus hands on TiVo

    This says it all to me though my guess is this is more Hulu and less TiVo.

    Not showing on mine as of yet, but I have no real interest either.

    No universal search!? That was the whole point! That has always been the excuse for why we pay the TiVo service fee, so they can provide us services like that, (I know it's mostly for the guide data, but they have always claimed that TiVo gives you more then just your run of the mill box, heck Media Center's guide data is free!). And it took them 8 months to implement the exact same application that the PS3, 360, and all the others have! Man I can't wait for my contract with TiVo to be over, if implementations like this are just going to be delayed and half-baked, it's not worth it to me anymore.

    It sounds like it might be just an issue trying to integrate it. I am also thinking it might be related to the fact they were forced to use Hulu's interface rather than being free to use TiVos.

    It could also be issues with how the data comes from Hulu and they are still trying to implement it so that it works correctly.

    OMG, it's so totally like TiVo to leave it all half-baked and inconsistent. What a joke.

    If TiVo can seal some more deals with the MSOs and become a bigger player in the DVR market, then they could man up and say: my platform, my interface. As it is right now, the app owners hold the power, and are forcing: my application, my interface. It's TiVo's playground, but the app owner has the ball.

    I think in the long run, if TiVo can (or is allowed to) present a unified look to all the Video Provider apps, it would be much easier and quicker to bring in more providers. Instead of designing a bunch of new screens and button functionality for each provider, a "cookie cutter" method could be deployed, using a template and filling in the details. The end user experience would be much better too, without the need of figuring out why button "X" does this in one app, and does that in another.

    I couldn't care less if the Hulu+ app looks the same on my TiVo as it does on the PS3/Xbox360/Blu-ray Player, things that I may or may not have. I do care that it doesn't look like the rest of my TiVo.
