Organize an HMO request

Since a large percentage of members here would like to see the HMO option become a reality, and (I hope) we have all sent direcTV a message requesting HMO, should we consider getting together and writing some sort of joint letter with a ton of signatures/digital signatures? Maybe we can get more info...the latest I've heard is that they will "evaluate Tivo's launch."

Anyone know* of a simple yet effective way to do this?

* edit 1: no=know (it only took me 1 1/2 years to catch it. )

Doesn't seem like theres a lot of interest...I found a free petition site but it's not worth all the trouble if it's just us two.

Hey, I am going to go and sign the petition... I think maybe it is important that we ask for everyone visiting this site join us in solidarity against DirecTV on this issue; even if you don't want or need HMO.

I, like many, find it crazy that DirecTV doesn't want to keep Tivo (sorry DVR) for DirecTV up-to-date. Now, I guess it could be money is involved, but if that is the case Tivo screwed up.

Anyway, sign the petition whether you want it or not and help out your Tivo Brothers and Sisters.

Call it the "Coillition of the Tivoing"

I'm #87, and I don't own a DirecTiVo, just a SA. But, us TiVo folks have to show solidarity, right?

Hey mods, can we make this a temporary sticky or advertise the petition to get more signatures?

Members, I suggest adding something about the petition to your signature, the more views the better.
