Philips has been building Directv units for Years, but as opposed to mrdbdigital comments, their Hardware is among some of the best. Many of the Directv/Tivo units hardware were produced by philips and they are still the best of the best out there.

So, philips has now moved onto the Software market, and I for one hope they do well.

Tivo needs some competition, otherwise you all will still be using the same units and software you are using now in 10 years time. Why would any company need to bring out improvements when they have no competition? Think about it.

if TiVo was making piles of money that may be true. Instead a lot of innovations have come out after ReplayTV folded.
But Tivo also has other Competition from others like the Sat and Cable Companies own DVR's.

now that being said Philips providing competition would be great since it would help spur sales of 3rd party DVR solutions and be a partner with TiVo in regulatory matters. The fact that TiVo would have to compete with someone that also has a good feature set is the icing on the cake for us end users.
I agree. :D
