Questions for TiVo?

I'm interviewing a TiVo exec about the emotional connection people have with their TiVo for a National Public Radio piece.

What questions would you like me to ask?

You should ask him what the next technological step would be for the TiVo. And how long until it arrives? -Tyler Richardson

I would like to know if TiVo plans on having any future partnerships with any type of cable or satellite provider, similar to their previous affiliation with DirecTV. I heard rumors they were working on a deal with Comcast. Has TiVo heard of Verizon FiOS TV and is there any opportunity for a partnership there?

Not a question, but an anecdote:

Four years ago, we bought my sister and brother-in-law a Tivo for Christmas. They'd said it sounded neat but wasn't something they really needed. Within one week of having it, of course, they knew they couldn't live without it.

Every Christmas morning since, after the gifts are unwrapped, we sit around the fireplace very contented and say, "What a great Christmas." "Yes," my brother-in-law says, "it was. But nothing can ever top the Christmas we got Tivo."

There's never a dull moment. I wouldn't miss our dates for anything. We sometimes hang out for hours without ever saying a word. I wanted it long before I even knew what a dvd was.

Zoom, Picture in Picture, and Video On Demand would be excellent features.
