I agree about the subject line. People do that in the Help Center forum and it drives me crazy, especially if you're trying to find questions you can answer for them. Please make your subject line descriptive for your issue or suggestion next time, such as "Add information about product placement in shows".
About your idea...it's a little farfetched, I don't think it'd be viable for the trouble Tivo would have to go through and all the deals they'd have to make with the networks. But it's similar to the whole "press thumbs up for more information" promos they do now during commercials. Since shows get paid for product placements, they would have to make that information available to Tivo beforehand or somehow encode the information in their broadcast (such as using ATVEF or ProSync triggers).
Funny thing is, although it sounds ridiculous now, you can bet that 5-10 years from now that technology will probably be available. Advertisers need to find more ways to do business now that DVRs let people skip commercials.
