As the comments on that page indicated, finishing the HDUI is way overdue. But given that it took 2 years to fix some of the HDUI slowness issues, this is pretty quick for them.

Tivo badly needs some real competition in the third-party DVR space, but they use their patents as a weapon to keep everyone else out. The result is software and hardware that, while far superior to what cable offers, is still nowhere near as good as it could be.
