    I got an email from TiVo asking me to take a survey, so I did. One of the questions (below) mentioned the Elite. Being OTA-only, I hope they're thinking about letting us have the Elite, but I suspect that whoever put the survey together just didn't know it can't handle over-the-air broadcasts.

    The way it's worded I have to think your suspicion is correct, as it talks about the Elite as a current product, rather than a future version of it.

    Was there a place provided for comments? If so, did you let TiVo know of their error? :p

    Guess they skipped December on me. I got last months but none for this month yet.

    I often get it a day or two after people here have already posted about it.

    Yeah I forgot about that so might get it later tonight. I do find they tend to occasionally skip me after a couple months in a row.

    Also since I own the Elite, it sounds like I am not the target market to poll.

    I commented on SDUI vs HDUI near the end, but by then I forgot to say I hoped they were serious about the Elite possibly supporting over-the-air.

    Someone reused the previous survey and just updated the name of the product. :(

    I agree. I bet the person who wrote it was sloppy and used the wrong specs. Unfortunately, I don't see them having two versions of the Elite- one with and one without OTA. I use *both*, so the Elite would not be a product that would interest me. Of course, I am in the minority (like with most things).

    I could see TiVo putting feelers out there to see if it would be worth the effort to make an OTA Elite.

    If that was their intent, they need to fix up that survey.

    Clearly just a copy/paste error.
