    I notice he hasn't been on any boards here since Oct. 16. I've been waiting for him to reply to a message, which he's done rather quickly in the past. Anybody have any insight? He hasn't been sent to Margaret land, has he? Hope not, as his participation here has been quite helpful.

    You would think he would tell us of any change to his availability. He was a big help.

    Perhaps his frustration (as he called out in one post) of anything he posted derailing into hydra-bashing led him to believe there has just got to be better ways to spend those minutes in a day.

    He's always seemed to me a pretty resilient sort, admirably.

    He could just be busy and not having the time to look on here. There are so many posts and requests I’d go nuts trying to sort them out.

    This has long been SOP here for Tivo employees, they come in and just get constantly harassed about OT topics and stop coming by.

    So true and so sad, there are some members that just cannot resist attacking him or bitching about Hydra every time he posts. I cannot figure out why if you do not like Hydra you just do not use it and just shut up, nobody is forced to use it.

    We don't need Ted. No offense, I like him. We need a corporate link. Nobody ever had Margret fix their problem. They told Margret and she found the right person to do the job. Right now we have a new Mira release. It would be nice to know why and when the rest of us will receive it. We should accept the lack of technical support from TiVo. But business problems are different. At this time you have part-time chat, Twitter, the phone (shudder), and email. A question was just posted about upcoming hardware. No technical knowledge needed to answer that. Until TiVo becomes plug-and-play (never happen), TCF is the only hope for many people. Rant over. :(

    If I ran TiVo <shudder>, I would have a person assigned to TCF, to publicize, generate goodwill, answer inquiries, funnel issues for handling/follow-up, and gather information to convey within TiVo . If even an intern (and making this a permanent intern function).

    I agree but you have to set ground rules. I’ve seen Dish people overrun dbstalk so they have to be helpful but not pushy or salesy. That’s probably why a senior person does it.

    There was what seemed to be a TiVo person who registered as "support" on 10/13. The post was killed before I could reply.

    Ted if you see any of this, just say Hi so we know you're OK.
