    My last email from them was March 7th. They had been coming pretty reliably every month before that.

    TiVo sent out surveys about once a month to the panel. It asked various questions about TiVo and your use and perceptions on occasion. However, it mostly asked about viewing habits (what apps and content watched) and lots of questions about what movies playing in the theaters we were aware of and which we were planning to see.

    I hadn't received one in quite a while either.
    Safe to say, they don't want our opinion

    The snarky, but mostly accurate, two-fold answer. 1) It asked select customers questions about features already in development so they could communicate to management they were on the right track. 2) Collected viewing preferences or trends to turn into marketable reports and press releases.

    If I had to guess they were fed up with all the angry rants in the other comments section (at least from me) and "no I would not recommend to a friend" ratings. So if they stop asking then they don't have to report that rankings are dropping. Since the either can't or won't do anything about it, they might as well stop asking.

    Oh wow, I hadn't realized that I haven't gotten one lately either. I don't know when my last one was but I have been doing them for years and have never missed a survey.

    Interesting. Maybe they are just throttling down how often each person receives them.

    I haven't received one since March.

    I did every one they sent in hopes of winning a prize. No TiVo or Amazon card for me though. Did any of you folks ever win anything in the drawings?

    I'm sure they were getting responses they didn't want to hear, so they decided to knock it off. I haven't received one for a few months either.
