Seriously... Tivo has been getting a cash-cow free-ride for some time now.. maybe it's time to focus the guns on them for their closed system.
Since they don't make the hardware themselves (contracted out) and make their income on the guide data, I wouldn't look for free or cheap alternatives there...
Maybe Tivo's business model just can't be successful. If so, that's too bad. The DVRs foisted off on cable/satellite users are pure cr@p.
