    I don't know of any "new" deal struck between TiVo and DirecTV.


    They could be referring to the announcements that DirecTV will be upgrading their TiVo powered units, but there hasn't been a new deal or extension of the current deal.


    There is no new DirecTivo in development or in discussions to be developed.

    I think that Earl must be right. Keep in mind that financials usually have a PR spin and that "deal" probably refers to just the minor tivo upgrades that we are seeing. Hope springs eternal though, doesn't it?

    I am not sure that a software update really constitutes a "deal" because I would assume that these updates were negotiated when the new contract was signed, so there is probably no monetary value to these updates. Just a guess.

    I'm assuming that this is nothing more than the contract extension that was signed to 2010 for the provision of the service. Stability is often a good thing for stockholders.

    On the road!
    About such a deal? That'd be GREAT!

    I got bushwhacked by the TiVo Community e-mail that mentioned a FREE Series 2 after rebate.

    After clicking a few times I came to realize that it's NOT a DTV TiVo like the one I've been using for three years. And the only ones they offer with coupons, (the free one is a single receiver,) won't record two satellite channels at once.

    I'd really like to get a TiVo that'd use my PC's LAN port through my PC's broadband model to do all the stupid 'Phone-Home" operations it desires. (Living on the road means I don't have a land-line to connect it to.)

    I'm going to go browse the DirecTV website for a while....
