Yesterday I had a call from UTV asking me for my opinions in a survey. It was long (30min) and covered the expected questions about, Tivo, EchoStar, Replay, cable and the features of UTV. The most interesting questions for me were about possible new UTV options. The most interesting one was would I be willing to pay $150 for an external box that would allow me to store an extra 105 hours (three times normal) of programs. Since this is about the cost of the raw hard drive for this amount I replied, certainly. The other question was would I be willing to pay $100 for a device to allow me to share control of a single UTV with a TV in a different room. Since I already do this I said no, but considering I spent $50 for IR extenders, and $30 for an extra RS remote, the cost seems reasonable. It looks like MS is aggressively looking at the market and has some interesting options in mind.
