Advertisements I will concede that fact but it's better than just throwing these boxes in the trash. Personally, I think they could leverage these old boxes to offer something comparable to the TR-50... well almost anyway. Free service (1 per household), OTA only w/ a limit to the number of season passes. The service could be paid for entirely by add sponsorship (in other words... more ads for these types of boxes). Tivo would be environmentally friendly by offering an outlet for these boxes to be used... instead of them going to the dump.
