See, now THAT is precisely why basic online petitions like this one will never carry any weight.

I'm not going to go into it though. This discussion has been had before.

Guys, I would recommend calling DirecTV and giving a "resolutions supervisor" the direct link to this petition, and tell them about your disappointment in DirecTV's decision to NOT support HMO. I just talked to a supervisor on the phone, and she didn't know about the petition and promised to forward it to all of her superiors.

Exclamation

Just singed, #5606

Getting HMO might be the step that pushes us for cable to Direct TV

It's clearly obvious that this is not making a bit of difference or doing anything tho further the availability of the HMO

The above article indicates that 2/3 of new TiVo subscribers in the Q3 were DirecTiVo'ers. That's ~136,000 people...so...a petition of even 6K-7K is not very substantial (statistically).

If 1/7th of the petitioners are legit (~1000), and, only 10% of that 1/7th buy HMO...that's only $10K. I'm not sure what TiVo wants for licensing HMO technology, but, I'm sure it's more than $10K...

In the end...stats aside...customers want it and it's a quick way to make some money and keep ahead in the game. Not doing this (or even announcing intent to) shows me that DirecTV execs are resting on their laurels...and that usually doesn't get anyone anywhere...

Now that News Corp has won approval to buy DirecTV, there's even less chance of getting HMO. Remember, Microsoft originally backed Murdoch's buyout and Ultimate TV was to be the premier set-top box for DirecTV. Now that things have come full circle back to News Corp (and not Dish), DirecTV management may be given new directives about what technology to acquire.

19K views of this thread but less than 9K have signed the petition TiVo series 3 will probably be out before DTV takes advantage of the Series 2 features!

Plain and simple -- I'll only upgrade to DirecTiVo when HMO is available... Otherwise, it's just not worth a second unit.

Oh, and SIGNED.

It's been a year now since this started.

I can see it's gotten us a whole lot closer to having HMO on our DIRECTiVos.

I'm gonna call DIRECTV right now and order HMO for mine.

When are you going to present this petition to DirecTV? Are you waiting for 10k signatures or are you waiting for a certain amount of time to pass. Has DirecTV seen this petition yet? We may have only needed 1k to get their attention. If they have already seen it please post their response.

Thanks.
