I think this is a dead stock. I think the settlements are surprisingly modest (about 55 cents per month per ATT sub by my calculation) and the technology is being disrupted by internet streaming.

I love my Tivo and I love TV but I was ready to give it up and also cut the cord when my TiVo Series 3 apparently died last week. However, wife and daughter prevailed, so now I have a Premiere XL. The UI seems more responsive than the Series 3 but I am not a fan of keeping the live TV going when I am in the menu. I love sports and use Tivo to timeshift NFL, NHL and Premiere League games. I can see this feature will spoil a lot of games because I'll hear the live score first.

Seems to me that Tivo's only hope is to climb in bed with as many cablecos as possible and ride that ship as long as they can. That's a far cry from where we thought they would be by now.

I sold the last of my TiVo shares a couple of years ago and only come to this board once in a while. I think the relative strengths of NetFlix and Tivo as companies is an absolute gem of a business lesson (and one I continue to learn from).

BTW the problem with the Series 3 appears to be a bad HDMI connection (cable or connector on the Tivo box).
