Advertisements Cable companies have used their position to squeeze TiVo out of the market. CableCARDs and TAs, lack of VOD, excessive use of the "copy once" byte, etc... They've done everything they're allowed to do to make TiVo as unattractive as possible. Comcast is sort of the exception, except they've only recently started to show TiVo some favor in an attempt to stave off additional regulation by pretending to cooperate with a 3rd party device. They still have their fair share of issues even with their relatively tight integration with TiVo.
