Well they have a new HD Tivo, which can be outfitted with "cable cards" which allow the Tivo to act as the system's set-top box. With two cable cards the Tivo can finally record something different than you're watching. So it's like a Tivo-plus, but I don't think it works with On Demand. The bigger problem is that it's more money more money, right at a time when you're converting to HD and already have to dump out a big load of money.
