Advertisements TiVo has a name not because of their existing legacy user base but because they were themselves an innovator and disruptor in TV technology back in 1999 when they introduced the original DVR. They're just trying to cash in on whatever familiarity and good will still exists among the general public for the TiVo brand with their new streamer. Now, I didn't say that the TS4K is going to be a success for them. As you say, they're breaking into this market years too late. What I am saying is that tying the product to their legacy install base wouldn't be enough to help the product succeed if it wasn't going to any way because the legacy base is so small. And keep in mind that adding and supporting a feature like that has costs of its own. I assume TiVo did the math and decided it just doesn't make sense.
