    Smile fingers crossed

    Great news, thanks for the links. That would imply it is even more likely that we will get TiVoHD in New Zealand. I presume TVNZ has reasonably strong links to FreeviewNZ, esp with regard to technical aspects of broadcasting.

    Just last night my wife was complaining that she couldn't watch/record three things at once, so I had to trawl the torrent sites looking for some episodes...c'mon TiVoHD. In the mean time I might need to replace our second TiVo which I recently sold to a friend...pitty NZ$ is so low.

    Be nice if TVNZ sell TiVo HD and offer SKY packages as well (similar to Telstra).
    I'm getting SKY HDi tomorrow but I'd prefer an HD TiVo.

    No Sky won't be packaged with TiVo - TiVoHD is only capable of receiving terrestrial broadcasts (FreeviewHD), and Sky is only broadcast via satellite.

    SKY is also broadcast via cable by Telstra. Would it be possible for TVNZ to re-transmit SKY via terrestrial?

    I got My SKY HDi today, it looks really nice but I miss my TiVo interface which is a million times more intuitive than SKY.

    Sky Terrestrial

    Possible technically, but unlikely to happen. Not sure how the encryption would work.

    I have heard on the grapevine that TiVo hopes to have units ready for sale sometime this year.

    Over the weekend I received a C & D letter from the director of legal affairs at Tivo inc for the domain tivo.co.nz the letter demanded immediate release of the domain to Tivo Inc. The letter stated I have till 17th March to Comply.

    However I do NOT own or have any affiliation with tivo.co.nz, a simple Whois lookup will verify this. I have replied to the email with words to that effect, and a paste of the Whois results for tivo.co.nz and have asked them to contact the owner.

    Will wait and see...

    Lawyers seem pretty stupid sometimes, but then I remember that they charge their clients for each correspondence they send and respond to.

    So quite often they will take the long way round to get results, annoying everyone else in the process.
