I would just like for any existing or prospecting Tivo customer to stand up and be heard.

With the 'new' release of the Tivo networking software, Tivo has unleashed a bombshell by trying to flog it for $199 !!! All that is required is to put a MAK key on the Tivo, then the desktop software will work!

From what we can tell, the software is what is already available for free download ($29.95 for exended in the US), so they should have not been any real development costs.

So, can I all ask that you show your objections to the massive price by writing to:


The more feedback, the better chance we have of getting a reasonable cost for all.
