...and he thinks it looks like Telecom in some form will be partnering with them.

Just has no appeal for me at all. I'll stick with my Sky decoder until I see some evidence that TiVo is worth looking at

not sure why fatso would partner with TIVO seeing as fatso is owned by SKY- unless it operates against SKY's best interests...

TelstraClear told me it was not talking to TiVo/TVNZ and had no plans to.
CallPlus and Orcon were trying, but TiVo was not returning calls.
Sky TV already has a cable TV partnership with TelstraClear customers. A TelstraClear PVR would be for cable customers only.
There's quite a lot of circumstantial evidence that TiVo will partner with Telecom:
