scrolling ticker while watching TV?

This may be a naive question, but I'll fire away anyway...

Does HME allow me to write a "scrolling news ticker" type application which is visible at the bottom (or top) of my TV, and displays while I'm watching TV?

I'm envisioning something like the scrolling ticker that's at the bottom/top of all news and sports shows, but instead of everyone seeing the same ticker, that each user can customize their preferences somehow so that the ticker is customized to their needs, while still watching TV?

Stated more succintly, can a Tivo application be displayed in part of my TV while the TV show is still being displayed on the TV, too?

Not at this time, it's a highly requested feature by the developers though.

thanks for the quick response!

do the Tivo folks have any sort of public announcement of upcoming features? in other words, is there any chance we might see a feature along these lines in the upcoming year or so?
