Advertisements The problem is that Tivo's window of having a clearly better DVR is closing. Sat DVRs are almost as good and in some ways better. Comcast has previewed a new Xfinity DVR and Verizon, TWC, etc. are not sitting on the sidelines either. Tivo has to maintain its status as the best DVR money can buy (vs. rent), and few of us here think they want to stay in that game.
