Advertisements Does anyone think this would be a good idea? Tivo needs a box, that can sit on top of the Series2 box (a seperate unit), and takes an antenna input. This box takes ATSC signals, and converts them so a S2 box can record them. (Not HDTV, just digital input). Of course, getting search / user guide data would also be included. Since we're less than 2 years away from no analog signal, people are going to be "stuck" with their old tv's. See http://www.dtv.gov/ for the "Final Countdown". One solution could be this digital decoder box that works alongside of your current Series2 (S2) tivo. Then Tivo can market it with "free extra channels" or something. One of the benefits of ATSC is not just the clarity, but the fact that each station is broadcasting multiple broadcasts at once. (Especially PBS, they're running sometimes 5 different shows at once) They've already got the ATSC channel lineups. They've already got alot of S2 customers. They've got USB ports on the back of the S2 units. Build this digital decoder box that complements an existing S2, and you can make an impact 2 ways. 1. Generate revenue, because people have to buy the boxes. ( I recommend a one time cost ). 2. You can work on that niche market of people who are tired of cable, tired of satellite, and who could be intrigued by getting more channels over antenna (aka, digital tv). I mean, they already have the pieces to make this happen. And they ought to have some use for the USB slots, and not just a wireless adapter. Tivo has alot of S2 boxes out there, and still alot of S2/DT boxes being sold. Let there be even more worth with these boxes by creating a new product, the digital tuner supplement box. Does that make sense? I submitted the idea via tivo's webpage already. But thought I'd make a post as well. It is was $100 or so, I'd buy one. Depending on where you live, there is alot of "free" tv out there being broadcast in digital quality. I'm guessing USB2.0 has enough bandwidth. My pinnacle portable HD is a USB2.0 device that gets the job done. Anyway..just throwing the idea out there.
