TiVo is dead. Move along

According to Cory Doctorow, TiVo is blowing off the Betamax decision, caving to Macrovision and Hollywood.

I can no longer recommend buying a TiVo. You will get a box that will fail you the first time you go on vacation, and sells your rights away to large corporations.

Humanity would best be served by someone selling small PCs running MythTV. Is there a CableCard-based PCI tuner yet?
