    As the great Billy Preston once wrote and sang, Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.

    But perhaps Sammy Davis, Jr. sang it better: Who can take a sunrise – sprinkle it with dew, cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two? The candyman can, the candyman can.

    The earnings release sort of reads that way unless you're numbers obsessive and…look at the numbers! :)

    I could see their growth slowing (they've been out for about 4 years now) but didn't expect them to lose viewers. But I know why.

    Cox Cable here in Las Vegas made me a deal where I got my DVR receiver for free and three free months of service, and then added only $10 p/m to my cable bill thereafter.

    Hard for TiVo to compete against that.

    one of the benefits of having the web site is it makes it much easier to repeat myself!

    I'm getting mine tomorrow.

    From Time Warner.

    Joe, if you're getting it from Time Warner, it's not a TiVo. ;)

    That's one thing to take away from the information above. Lots more people are getting DVRs, but almost none of them are TiVos.
