Hi TiVo, I suggest that you upgrade the GUI on our PVR10UK's to look like the ones in the usa! At least that way we feel like we are getting an update of somesort and it would make a nice change aswell, as the current one is the same as the one Sky Digital had on their EPG when Sky Digital was first released years and years ago here in the UK! What we wouldn't give for even a basic series 2 TiVo!
PS Don't forget the UK market, as we are still here and are benefitting from ZERO updates at all! BRING TIVO BACK TO THE UK!
TiVo has said, repeatedly, that international expansion, including Europe, is important to them. But it takes resources and time, so there is no way to know when they'll enter each region. They've just started expanding into Asia, with the launch in Taiwan.
Hello Mate! Yeah, i'm aware of all that but Taiwan didnt have TiVo's to begin with so they don't know what they are missing! over here in the UK, we do have tivo, but do you know how frustrating it is to see the US TiVo's doing all sorts of fancy stuff, and wishing our Thompson Scenium TiVo's could do that to. We know what we are missing out on! Try and picture what it would be like if TiVo pulled out of the US (although its not gonna happen) and as a result, all updates and Tivo manufacturing was stopped like it is here in the UK, while in another country TiVo was getting better and better and was becoming able to do more and more! Thats what its like here!
I've been wondering what prevented Tivo from selling the S2's in the UK.
I think with the expansion into Taiwan, TiVo should indeed roll the S2 into the UK as well.
A local partner basically. The S1s were handled via Thomson. When they pulled out, that's when TiVo stopped selling in the UK. TiVo said at the time, and since, that if a company wanted to take TiVo into the UK again they'd work with them. TiVo themselves just wasn't prepared to handle product localization, manufacturing, distribution, etc, for the UK. For Taiwain the local corporation TGC was formed, in which TiVo holds a minority stake.
