File under the surveying the obvious category.
A survey has determined that TIVO is losing its buzz. Ya think?
Maybe the fact that
1) DirecTV has abandoned it,
2) the HDTV boxes we paid a grand a pop for are either dying of a bad hard drive or about to be obsolete since they don’t do MPEG-4, and
3) nobody who dumped cable for satellite TV is willing to run back to the oppressive cable company just in the hopes of using a TIVO until the cable company pulls a DirecTV and dumps TIVO in favor of its own recorder
has something to do with it.
