bazzer: The EPG is going to be the same, isn't it? Where did you read that it wasn't going to be? I thought it was only the DLC that's not available.
Correct. It looks like the EPG will be available to any Tivo owner - you just need a broadband connection.
Of course, that leads to the question if whether non-Tivo owners can get access to the EPG; there are already scripts and programs out there to convert Tivo listings to XMLTV format, so it may be possible to use this with non-Tivo PVRs.
