“TIVO TO RAISE MONTHLY PRICES BY 30 PERCENT” According to this Reuters article. I wonder how this will impact their sales, as compared to Replay (who’s service is free) and Microsoft’s UltimateTV (which is customized for DirecTV).

Whichever service is chosen, the PVR is a helluva product. I own an UltimateTV box, and recently tested the Replay 4000 for Home Automation and Electronic House magazines, and they’re both terrific. And it’s great to spend an evening watching shows you want to watch, rather than clicking channels and trying to shift through so much of the flotsam and jetsam that’s all over TV–especially with a satellite, which is often “500 channels and there’s nothing on” (to paraphrase Bruce Springsteen).
