Advertisements I will absolutely agree with you that it isnt a Tivo, and to call it a direct replacement is a disservice to both units, no matter how a person feels about either of them. And while the poll says that 20% of the people would not get it, I wonder how many got it thinking it was a Tivo? I cannot argue the 2 year commitment as my wife will kill me if I ever left D* because of a couple of channels that she likes so the commitment is moot for me. And I like the Tivo format, just not as passionately as some here. However I feel that perhaps you are overstating the desire of Tivo users to stand up against D*. I think that those people who Tivo has become a way of life have begun to migrate to other providers in order to continue to use that format, figuring wisely, that D* is not going to concede to their desires. I remember when Ford came out with the Taurus in 1986, 50% of the people who saw it absolutely hated it, the looks, the style, etc. Ford chose to focus on the 50% who liked it and went on to sell more of those Tauruses for a decade than any other comparable car. I think thats where D* might be at this point, they are going to focus on the people who want to use their service under their terms and they will let those in the minority choose what they are going to do in the future.
