In the latest Survey i found in my inbox today there was hint of a 4 (FOUR) tuner TiVo. Muwahahahaha
I blame Innocent freak
The wording wasn't exact, but the jist I got was co-operative scheduling capabilitly between DVRs.
I rated that higher up than the other choices.
For the comments section, I simply put:
#1 Finish the Premiere (complete HDUI, enable 2nd processor core, etc.). [ 75]
#2 Work on new features. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .[ 25]
I'm excited to see a feature I've requested for years now - the ability to use unused tuners on other Tivos in my house when there are conflicts on my primary. A four tuner Tivo would be neat too.
Wasn't there something in that survey about satellite boxes to stream content to, ala Moxi?
How do we know the survey is real? TiVo just had all our emails stolen. So, it could be a phishing attempt.
There is no logon/authentication/challenge when taking the survey, so that isn't a concern. If it was a hoax site, what value would opinions concerning TiVo features be to anyone other than TiVo?
Took them long enough lol. I don't want to wait now.
I rec'd the survey also; I think "hint" is too strong a word. They simply asked how important certain features would be to you; one of the features was a 4 tuner TiVo. They also asked about streaming between DVRs, scheduling across tuners, being able to order VOD, and much more.
They want to know what's important to us. It doesn't mean any of it will arrive. But hey, it also doesn't mean it won't!
We already know they are developing the extender and 4 tuner TiVo. The question will be whether it is offered for retail.
TiVo brought it up so someone at TiVo must be throwing the idea around, hinting they have the ability, or at least had a dream of one day producing such a box.
Given TiVo's track record of Hype it is every bit as crediable as the second core in the Premiere being enabled..one day..maybe, Hulu+ on the Premiere..one day..maybe,-oh yeah "Coming Soon". Lastly let us not foget the New DTV TiVo, thats not here yet either. Therefore i find the possibility of a 4 tuner TiVo every bit as credible as any of those that dont exist.
Every proposed item, no matter the manufacturer, is vaporware until it is sitting on a shelf ready to purchase. Speculation concerning upcoming features may be fun, but it is hardly productive.
So what is the term for an unfinished product sitting on a shelf ready to purchase? If there's no term yet, I'll go ahead and suggest Tivo Premiere!
"Inventing the DVR was just a warmup." Indeed.
Sorry MS Windows owns that title or perhaps software in general. Never finished and when they need more money it becomes a new version instead of a update/patch.
Wish I'd come here before putting my SSN in that survey!
Actually, I found it interesting at the end, the survey had my name and complete address except for my Zip Code.
In my experience the surveys always do that. I don't know if it's so we have to enter something and not just click through that screen ????
Me too! I thought the same thing--they wanted some human input at the final screen.
And it appears it worked.
Hows that any different from the HD to the Premiere? Toss a half baked HD UI on the HD and viola, you got a Premiere.
They should worry more about fixing the crap (yes, crap) they're selling now before worry about pushing out some other half baked product to fleece us out of our money with.
No different - my point was we have been conditioned to accept unfinished software as the norm and MS has been doing it allot longer than TiVo.
Regarding The Premiere you are welcome to think anything you want but mine is the best TiVo/DVR I have ever had.
I also paid less for my Premiere with lifetime than I did for my TiVo HD with lifetime and even less than what my Series 3 (which I bought as a refurbished unit) would have cost if I had put lifetime on it. If fact my Premiere even cost less than my Series 2 with lifetime did. So what you call crap I call a better DVR for less money.
