    There is no way TiVo would even consider offering such a service if they didn't get a cut. So of course TiVo would pay for the HME front end development in exchange for a cut of service provided to TiVo customers.

    I'm sure they get similar cuts from Yahoo! and Live365 for TiVo users who use their services.

    That would be about negative 2 years.

    The fact is any service has to develop a seperate TiVo version to reach all of 450K Broadband connected devices. TiVo has gone proprietary with HME, and 3rd party development has faded. TiVo wanting a piece of all the action prevents HME development even more.
