    I just heard a rumor that TiVo is working on a new groundbreaking DVR.

    It will know what you want recorded before you do.

    No commercials, except for the ones you find interesting or funny (if any).

    It will add any new feature you can think or anyone else can think of. No more waiting for TiVo to come out with a new feature. As soon as you can think of it..... Bam, it's there.

    The TiVo Omniscient it's a real know it all!

    My understanding is that the initial setup with really be a ***** though. It will require the user to stick an ethernet cable in their ear for up to 4 hours (depending on IQ) for the initial download of information.

    Will there be an upgrade path for those of us that bought the TiVo SuperAdvance two years ago? Can I transfer my Lifetime service for free? :D

    This is the one TiVo that will NEVER need to be upgraded. It will always know what everyone wants before they know that they want it. It will auto upgrade with no delays from TiVo because it is auto coding. TiVo will no longer needs developers once this one comes out. It's omniscient all the way baby..... It's got the Omniscient Centa Core processor with World AI technology.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see this model released before the next DirecTiVo is.

    Yes, they are still working on the Premiere (I hope).

    Older Tivos do this. They're called suggestions.
    This too. 30 second skip hack.
    Now that would be truly innovative, but I don't think TiVo could pull it off (See Premiere referenced above).












































    And yes, I know this was an April fool's joke thread. ;):p

    Wait, don't look out the window, they will spot U!! Creep around the back of your house and peak around the corner. U will see an large black sedan with shinny tiny hubcaps. In it are 4 lanky men with the skinniest black ties and the whitest shirts this side of Mars. They all have laptops that are monitoring your every move/click of the mouse/ touch of the remote control. How they can see anything with those jet black sun glasses on this moonless evening?!
    When U call on the phone to order a pizza they already know what U ordered last time, and will advise the pizza joint to charge U extra because your last medical check up indicated your cholesterol to be higher than last year. When the see that U order porn movies on Tivo/amazon they can understand that U are doing it now before the wife and kids get home.
    When U post on a message board that the only way that anyone is getting your weapons is by "prying them out of your cold dead hands", they lock and load their weapons and adjust their bullet resistant vests.
    Quiet now!! Here the near invisible black helicopters coming over the horizon?
    Kiss your sweet bippy goodbye.
