Tivo powered muti-dvr controller

I would like to see Tivo come out with a multi-dvr controller. It would work similar to a remote extender at times but would have a hard drive with all the Tivo software to manage your viewing and would hijack other dvrs, such as the new ones being released by DTV, turning them into a "Tivo". The best part would be if an individual had more than one dvr, the controller would keep track of everything on every dvr at the same time, and the user would not have to be concerned where the program was. The actual dvrs would become dummies waiting for the commands from the Tivo controller. On older series one models, the serial port could be activated and used for the controller to get feedback to keep updated on what was actually on the dvr, but all the progam viewing management would be controlled by Tivo software built in the controller. When a person was watching tv live, the controller would just act as a remote extender, but when the person brings up the guide they would have the option of using the controller guide rather than the dvr guide and that is when the real magic would take place - when they make a selection it would send the signal ( same as using a regular dvr remote) to the dvr. Tivo would take care of the software and the progam information, we would have Tivolution magazine and the other great management tools of Tivo again and on every dvr we owned. It would not have to cost as much, as it would not actually record the shows, just control the other dvrs, and it could be updated to control dvrs by other manufacturesr just by sending the proper signals at the proper time.
