If Directv gives Tivo the boot, I hope Tivo makes a stand alone box. Most of my viewing is coming from HD Primetime anyway? Cable doesn't have that many good shows like CSI, Alias, 24 and so on. Primetime has great shows and HD makes them more enjoyable. I think a stand alone Tivo HD would sell. I own 2 Tivo's now.

Maybe Murdoch will solve the complainers problem of a decision to drop the DTV support of the HDTV TIVO by dropping HDTV altogether. Just a thought! It does appear that HDTV has severely attacked the limited resources of DirecTV while not offering much in the way of ROI. Everyone knows that HDTV is a glamour niche product right now for all services but it really doesn't pay it's own tab, yet. Murdoch may have a totally different philosophy to run this company, maybe he feels he should concentrate on what turns the quickest buck now and worry about catch-up later when HTV becomes mainstream and not having it begins to cost him too may paying subscribers.
