    Isn't it amazing and ironic how many are quick to criticize and complain about TiVo's legitimate lawsuit against E*, and then discuss suing E* for breaking what they percieve is a contract with them. Some weird irony in that when it comes to loyalty. Like I have said before, if Dish is forced to disable their DVRs (which is a real possibility) then the future looks bleak financially and customer wise.

    It depends on what side you are.
    From my side it is not.

    Are you sure? I thought TiVo and Replay TV were both out before Dish had any pvr capability.
    Tivo, Microsoft, and Replay all showed units at CES in January 1999. Tivo first shipped in March of '99. The Dishplayer shipped in June of 1999, but only had time shifting at that time - the full PVR capability came later (end of the year?). The PVR capability was there by the time I got mine in early 2000. I'm not sure when ReplayTV shipped to customers.

    The Dish PVRs came a couple years later.

    Nowhere in the P&L Statement does it show a 90 Million Dollar adjustment for lawsuits won.

    The dates of when the products hit the market are meaningless. Tivo Inc. was around a while before they went to market. It's not as if somebody opened a factory and started spitting out Tivos the next day. The issues revolve around key programmers who took the intellectual property of Tivo (already patented) and applied it to E*s second Gen DVR/PVR boxes (after M* bailed out).
