direct tv no longer has a contract with tivo.
at the moment no one does. but i heard recently they again partnered up with someone to again produce boxes for sat/cable companys. i forget who the partnership was with though.....
i had a tivo when i had directtv. it was a great unit but older, non-hd and small hard drive. i wanted to upgrade, but since they no longer had tivo i changed providers. the dish ViP722 i have now is a great unit. now that im used to it i like it almost as much as my tive.
my favb feature on the tivo was when you hit play after fast forwarding, it automagically went bak a few seconds so you didnt miss any of your show.
