    ITC administrative law judge that Comcast's X1 platform infringed on certain intellectual property held by Rovi, a TiVo subsidiary.

    But a closer look at that claim indicates it's a somewhat hollow victory for TiVo in part because Comcast has long removed the feature in question.

    Well with statements like below....I would say Tivo will never have access to Comcast VOD. TiVo, which is in the process of merging with Xperi, has pledged to continue to sue Comcast until the operator enters a "fair licensing agreement with TiVo and pays us what it owes."

    comcast's legal team will long outlast any tivo courtroom maneuvers, if the new tivo performs as well in court as they do with current guide data and skipmode availability.

    The courts are TIVO'S only real source of income. TIVO probably spends more money on attorneys than hardware development.

    Except, ultimately, it gets some patent infringement $ for TiVo (and continues to box Comcast in, a bit, in not infringing TiVo patent rights)?

    Nope Comcast will get the biggest laugh as most of the TiVo plus channels is owned by Xumo which Comcast is in the process of buying.
