What is TiVo Headquarters like?

Are their people dressed up like TiVo guy dancing around all day? Are their TiVo's in every office? Are they all networked? Phoneline or ethernet? Is the building shaped like a TiVo? Do you eat lunch together? Can a staffer e-mail the big guy? Is there a big Summer Solstice party?

Sorry, it's just a typical industrial park type of building. I work very close to there and pass by it often (it's pretty cool to see that TiVo logo on the building and come to the realization that this is the TiVo folks who gave us such a great technology). You can see it from the freeway, so they take advantage of that and hang huge banners on the building to advertise TiVo. Here are a couple of sites that show pictures of the headquarters.

Good point. I missed ChofuHS's smiley.

ChofuHS and I had an exchange, but it's gone now. Nothing to see here. Move along!

There are some nice shots of the exterior here:

This was from our big Giveaway of December 2004. You can see the volleyball court, and the exterior shots look a bit more attractive than in some other photos in this thread.

I visited Apple's HQ in 1981 (hmm- maybe 80)- it was in an industrial park, pretty non descript prefab thing that could have housed an injection molding operation (as many of the neighbors did). Apple logo outside- No one had a clue what was done there- not very many people really knew what a micro was. About where DVRs are today.

Sounds like Tivo HQ is much much nicer on the inside than Apple's was. I really hardly noticed though, as far as I was concerned the atmosphere was electric and quite frankly I or any of my friends would have killed to have been offered a job there. Ok, maybe not my friend who worked at Stanford Research Center.
The only thing better would have been to work here. It may looked a little on the uninspired side, but this is where Apple was born.

My advice to Tivo employees is to take lots of pictures and keep them for posterity- especially the candid ones. People will be amazed to see what it was like in the early pioneering days. You can usually tell the pioneers- they are the ones adept at ducking arrows.

Anyhow, I think this one was posed but rather indicative:

The guy doing all the work is Steve Wozniak. The guy not doing any work is Steve Jobs.

Quick check shows I have edited. Got to run to airport to take wife. Will double check later to make sure I completed the job. Let me know if I missed anything due to being in a big hurry!

IMO there is nothing for me to clean up; smileys are not an excuse to plead "protection" from any kind of response because one used a "smiley". IMO it's not a "mistake" that we both "missed" the smiley. Anyway I did miss most of the exchange so I really don't know about most of what you are referring to.

Not intending to divert this thread or anything, just commenting. And now, I invoke thee, smiley protection powers!

If you had done your homework you would have known that TiVo has no control over the DirecTV boxes. This has been a source of complaint on this forum for years; we even have an online petition asking DirecTV to update to the latest TiVo software, not that they listen to us. DirecTV has kept their TiVos frozen for a long time with absolutely no changes, so it is no use complaining here about it. Go complain to DirecTV.

If you want to complain about the standalones, then and only then should you be talking to TiVo. Personally I have found the constant improvement of the TiVo standalones to be very significant and useful; nevertheless people always find something to complain about. YMMV.

But complaining to TiVo about something that TiVo has no control over, such as DirecTV, is just silly. You're wasting your time here.

Would I be correct in assuming that TiVo entered into a contract with D* which spelled out how much control TiVo would, or would not have over thier own software? If so, this contract was agreed upon by both companies and all of these issues were negotiable at that time.

At the risk of going further off topic.....you (assuming you are a DirecTV subscriber) also entered into a "contract" when you bought a DirecTiVo and signed up for DirecTV service, and part of that involved the fact that DirecTV, and not TiVo, controlled all of the software updates and the DirecTiVo platform as a whole. The only exception to this is if you were paying full price for DirecTiVo many years ago when the platform was still controlled by TiVo; however, as you say TiVo and DirecTV renegotiated that deal, and in exchange for handing over control of the DirecTiVo platform to DirecTV, TiVo also negotated a much, much lower monthly subscription price for DirecTiVo users. So you can have your cake, or you can eat it. But not both.

The fact is, the deal is as it is, and not as it was. You can have a DirecTiVo with low monthly subscription and no software updates, or you can have a TiVo standalone box with lots of software updates but a higher monthly subscription price. DirecTV controls the software on the boxes; you get a lower subscription price. TiVo is no longer in control over the DirecTiVo boxes. You cannot have it both ways, reaping the benefits of DirecTV control but blaming TiVo for DirecTV's refusal to allow software updates. TiVo cannot make any updates without direct approval and authorization from DirecTV, and DirecTV (for many reasons we can speculate about) says no. So you can either sign the petition to DirecTV (if it is still up on this website; I have not looked) or you can complain to DirecTV directly. Since thanks to Murdoch DirecTV may be dumping TiVo entirely, don't expect them to listen to you.

It has always been DirecTV's network, anyway, so they make the rules - TiVo never had an "equal" negotiating position vis a vis DirecTV, and that's not going to change unless the FCC steps in and forces the satellite providers to open up their networks in the same manner as they are doing with the CableCARD standard. In like manner, don't expect the TiVo/Comcast deal to be any different; Comcast will be calling the shots, not TiVo, in deciding how the software works on Comcast's cable boxes. Only the full implemention of CableCARD is going to change this situation and put TiVo in full control over its product - and only on standalone TiVo boxes.

Edit: here's the thread about DirecTV and HMO and other TiVo updates missing from DirecTiVos, and the online petition; rather large thread but worth looking at if you find the subject of interest: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-v...ad.php?t=109505

Anyway......back to the thread's original topic......more candid pics of TiVo office cubicles would be nice. Pics of TiVoShanan would be nicer.

Not all day. Just sometimes. (My team did borrow the TiVo guy costume for a Halloween video skit last month, and the video prominently featured the TiVo guy dancing... But I can't release that video, sorry.)

Quote:

None of us (except the CEO) have offices -- we're all in cubes. I'd say about half of the cubes have a TiVo DVR and small television set. Then there are the labs. Lots of DVRs in those.

Quote:
Are they all networked?
Nope, not all. Most are not networked together.

Quote:
Phoneline or ethernet?
Both! But mostly ethernet.

Quote:
Is the building shaped like a TiVo?
Two buildings, side by side, two floors each, and they're pretty much just shaped like buildings. There are lots of TiVo logos inside, however, such as the giant TiVo logo on the soda machines.

Quote:
Do you eat lunch together?
Who has time for lunch? But each day a sizable group of employees do gather for lunch in the "town center" of our main building.

Quote:
Can a staffer e-mail the big guy?
Assuming you mean the CEO -- absolutely. He encourages it.

Quote:
Is there a big Summer Solstice party?
Nope, but we do celebrate a date near the vernal equinox:

Personally, seeing those pictures of the building.....sort of depresses me. Not that I was also hoping for Willy Wonka, but a little more pizazz would be nice. Heck, there should be a big TiVo guy out in front, sort of like the glass pyramid is out in front of the Louvre.

Oh well, one can wish and spend the company's money........

Yeah, the first picture kinda looked like an old seedy Ramada Inn you might find off an interstate.

The other pictures looked better, though less "high-techy" than I would have imagined

TiVo should have a contest....build the most creative, practical TiVo HQ model. It's brilliant!! The winner gets a trip to TiVo HQ to test some new gear and lunch in the "town center" with everyone involved at TiVo HQ.

Thats it! TiVo needs to start selling an inflatable lighted TiVo Guy for the front yard! You know like the Turkeys for T-day and Santa's for X-mas. I would buy one of those for sure. They could even make a TiVoClaus (TiVo guy with santa hat), TiVoTurkey (TiVo guy with tail feathers) and a TiVoBunny (Easter bunny ears). Now that would be advertising.

How about a TiVo guy balloon for the Macy's Day Parade. Then they could just tie it to the top of the building the other 364 days a year.

Lunch break is over... back to reality.

Does Tivo have an open refrigerator policy ala Microsoft? I heard at Microsoft all the softdrinks are free. And all there lunches are catered my Mariot or someone like that, and they are only a few bucks. This keeps the employees fat and happy and content, less likely to seek employment elsewhere.

I used to work near there and even went to Alviso for lunch on occasion, and to the driving range. This was before Tivo occupied that building, I think. The last time I was in the area, around 2000 or so, I don't recall Tivo being there, but I may have just never noticed. I didn't join the Tivolution until last year.

I agree the outside is a bit dull (we just lease the buildings after all), although there is some beautiful marshland right nearby.

However, the inside decor is very nice. I've heard it has won an award or two, and we were featured on the cover of a "Corporate Interiors" magazine in 2000.

IIRC, if you go into the lobby of the 'right hand' building, then go through the left door out of the lobby into the building, along the right side of the hallway there are glass cases built into the wall - and in one of those is an award for the interior design.

*waves to Stephen and Jerry*

There happens to be a PDF online from that book with some pictures. TiVo is on the cover and on page 8. The lobby featured on the cover and on the right hand side of page 8 is actually the "old" lobby. The lobby is now in the other building so you won't see it if you happen to visit the offices some day. The other photos on page 8 of the PDF are TiVo Town center (the place for lunch gatherings and company meetings) and one of the infamous cubicles.
