    :eek:
    Before you blow back my hair, I know most of you thought Framechannel was worthless. I was one of the few who was trying hard to make it work for me.

    So now, I have grown a bit dependent on the following functions:
    1) Being able to view weather satellite images of storms not just in my area, but headed my way (note: too bad they were static images)
    2) RSS feeds - I had 12 that I actually used
    3) Stock quotes (although I found this feature lacking the detail I wanted)

    I do believe a customizable channel can provide a real value to the user.

    What is/should TiVo do now?

    i would much rather have a ticker not a channel. Would be nice to have a ticker at the bottom of whatever i watch for this.

    Framechannel was just silly. They need a real app store.

    You could check out Galleon. It has Weather and RSS apps, but no stock ticker. Also, it involves running software on your PC (instead of just having something out "in the cloud" like FramChannel).
