I have high hopes for this. Hopefully TiVo will not abandon it this time.
I'm probably wrong, but I always figured TiVo abandoned earlier 3rd party developers because they were afraid of the competition. 3rd party developers often proved they could surpass what TiVo could do (case in point: it took a 3rd party developer to solve the DST bug that affected S1 Tivos when DST was altered).
Hopefully TiVo has been humbled enough that they can embrace what passionate Tivo users have to offer.
Edit: I wonder if TiVo is going to try and follow the Apple model for apps. 3rd party developers come up with the apps and TiVo sells them to customers via the "TiVo Store". Developers get compensated a percentage per # of apps sold.
