Advertisements Could you have "at least" planned to replace your Series 3 with a Premiere? At the expense of what? They spent what the spent to produce what they've produced, so go through the list of advancements in the TiVo Premiere and list those that you would have them not have implemented, to make room in the budget from what you would have had them do instead. Then, we'll talk about how you're going to prove that doing as you would have had them do instead actually better for them than what they actually did. The point is that we're probably not in a good position to judge whether pleasing us pays off. We're always going to overestimate our own value, and underestimate the cost we incur (and the value others afford TiVo).
