who wants to be fair.... just hack it and get what you want. D* does not care about this post, the petition, or their customers.

heck, now they don't even offer tivo.... just their crappy dvr. if they ever decide to keep customers from using their directv tivos then they can count me as gone. tivo rocks compared to their piece of junk.

Take the D* networking survey

Take the D* networking survey! Follow this link: http://www.zoomerang.com/recipient/s...WEB225YMUP2RSG of go to forums.directv.com and click on the home networking survey link (bottom right "take this survey") Directv is paying for it so maybe they'll finally listen!

PS: you can either login or "continue as a visitor" to take the survey.

i do not see the point of this survey. what does it have at all to do with HMO? they're not going to do a thing to allow HMO for dtv tivos.

I've chucked tivo and D* altogether - FIOS will be installed this comming Thurs.
For less money I'll have HD, HMO, more channels, & internet.

I have 2 fully functional D* tivo units if anyone's interested.........

Thumbs down Not doing anything to help TIVO

Since I just found out that TIVO supports Humax's one year only policy of product liability and my Humax TIVO is toast. I am dumping TIVO for Direct TV. TIVO should be ashamed of having Humax as a supplier.

>dumping TIVO for Direct TV

In that case, you need to know that what DirecTv supplies now is NOT a Tivo
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=332593

Their new equipment is discussed at...
http://www.dbstalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=82

If you want a DirecTv Tivo unit, you will have to find one

Where to I get a DirecTv Tivo?

Isn't that true of the vast majority of consumer products?

So after all this time, is there any hint DirecTV is moving toward a unit with HMO?

No hint at all that Directv would ever do this. I think someone should really kill this thread.... as it does not seem to be valid and D* has no clue.

hopefully not resurecting a dead thread but i'm still waiting on HMO.

Is this finally a sign they will enable the usb/network options? making hmo that much easier?

I have a s2 tivo upstairs (free) and directv w/ tivo downstairs. i would LOVE to use HMO with both.

DIRECTV to Introduce Additional TiVo Features

EL SEGUNDO and ALVISO, Calif., July 31, 2007 — DIRECTV, Inc. (NYSETV), the nation's leading satellite television service provider, and TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVR), will develop a software upgrade to enhance the user experience for DIRECTV customers who have DIRECTV DVRs with TiVo® service built on the Series2™ platform.

Launching in early 2008, the new software download will provide these customers with DVR enhancements offered with the TiVo service, including a Recently Deleted Folder and Overlap Protection™, as well as DIRECTV's Remote Booking feature. In addition, DIRECTV and TiVo will continue to explore ways to bring future enhancements to DIRECTV customers with TiVo receivers.

"It is important to us that our customers with TiVo service also have access to the latest DVR technology and we look forward to exploring additional opportunities with TiVo," said Derek Chang, executive vice president, Content Strategy and Development for DIRECTV, Inc. "DIRECTV's launch of these additional features underscores the uniqueness of TiVo's DVR service," said Naveen Chopra, vice president, Corporate Development and Strategy for TiVo.

DIRECTV and TiVo began their relationship in 2000 with the launch of the first DIRECTV DVR with TiVo. In April 2006, both companies announced an extension of their commercial and advertising relationship through early 2010.

if the new software already popping up is any indication, HMO is dead on DTivos.

The code is not in 6.x software, hence it is dead.

Reading between the lines here....

HMO is not in the code delivered by DirectTV but it used to be there latent?

I would think the important issue would be is the DirectTV code in the standalone release?

I thought TiVo worked on a unified code base so that if they could ever convince DTV to pay for an upgrade the work was essentially already done.
While it would certainly be notable that HMO was missing from the code even when not in use by DTV but as long as TiVo continues to develop it there always seems like there is an opportunity.

Come on TiVo sell it for us, make them an offer they can't refuse!

I meant 6.3 versions (bad day yesterday). It is in the 6.1 and 6.2 versions but was not in there for the HD DTivos which got 6.3 (I also assume that it was not in the 3.x for them too). Since they are now putting them all on the same version they decided to use the 6.3 one which does not have the code in it.
