    I read that Ted is no longer working for Tivo.

    Anyone confirm?

    I was impressed with Ira when I read the "20 [or whatever the number was] questions with Ira" thread here--anyone who agrees to such openness deserves a hand.

    This topic does bring up: I realize that matters at TiVo are in flux, but, is there a "new Ted"?

    I've spoken to all of them personally and they were all good people. Ira was more of a sales person/marketing type though. The other two were more helpful and easier to communicate with.

    They are apparently smarter than most of us that are still getting screwed by the "TIVO-20" ad virus. Ads came back after the last firmware update. Tivo support told me that it would not happen again. Wanna bet?

    But with Pi-Hole running now... The most I see are the arrows for a couple seconds and the recording starts.

    You'all be safe

    I'm thankful that I'm not on a first name basis with anyone at Tivo.

    Margret was great for her participation here on this forum.

    However, as CDO, I always thought she was more of a "make it look pretty, I don't care if it doesn't work well" form-over-function type of person. Engineering-wise, she seemed behind the eight ball. That was noticeable during the NTP mess.

    The new, disastrous UI came on on her watch, as did the removal of more useful season-pass functionality.

    But she participated here, so I guess that is a big plus for her.

    They all had different roles in the company, but the forum engagement was obviously an appreciated commonality, carrying on a long company trend (that could be over). Ira was marketing, Margret was product, Ted was both.

    I connected to Ted via LinkedIn and offered my help in doing virtual intros to any people/companies in my connections list. He was very appreciative. I figured since he was very helpful to us in the forum that I would do what I could to help him.

    When you have 30 years of work experience, you tend to build up a fairly wide network of connections.

    Sadly, no one will be posting here - officially anyway moving forward.
