    Yea, which could probably end up being 2010 (remember the HR10-250?) but it disproves what all those who predicted it's demise over the last year or so have been saying.

    Doesn't that sound like what they are doing? I'd pay more/month for a TiVo software upgrade.

    Wow, this certainly is a blow to all the folks who insisted there would never be a rejuvination of TiVo's and DirecTV's partnership that would include new hardware.

    This news made my day! Can't wait until a year or so from now for some TiVo goodness!
