What TiVo Didn't Want to Hear from Mike Fries, Liberty Global CEO

http://investordiscussionboard.com/boards/tivo

Quote:
Q: Is there any thought to bring the TiVo UI to the Horizon box?

Fries: No, No, No , No. I think the Horizon is much better looking. Much better functional. Its where we want to be as an industry. The way it flows, the way the graphics work through pictures. Its the way were headed. And by the way, that UI exists on the cloud so just last week I saw great demos of Horizon in the cloud so that we can, is just like shooting HTML5 page to the television screen. The same way any web site works. And you can update it and modernize it. That's where we want to be as an industry....

The actual UI demo starts about 2 minutes into the following video.


First look at the new UPC Horizon TV set-top box
You need to upgrade your Flash Player

Sorry, Sam, look LESS functional and I think people want LESS or NO buttons on their remote control.

No argument from me. It looks similar to Comcast X1/X2 as well.

I hate how everything is laid over the video. I specifically turn off that little preview window on my TiVo because it's a spoiler window. This is even worse.

I want the window there. i only wish it would be up for every screen that TiVo has in the UI. If I don't want to see a spolier I will just hit pause. But right now if I'm watching a previously recorded program and go to a screen with the window, it will still be plaing. But as soon as I go to an SDUI screen there is no window and when I come back to a screen with the window it will be playing live TV. Not sure if that is how it always behaves though, but I'm more likely to see a spoiler in that situation then if I had that window available on every screen.
