Sean was right. You dopes were wrong. Let's review

Archived from groups: alt.video.ptv.tivo (More info?)

For months and months and months I've been posting that Tivo was
doomed without a viable HD cable product.

Ramsay supposedly backs out of a Comcast deal at the last minute
and pig headedly insists Tivo doesn't need cable.

All you Tivo Rumpswabs in this group parroted the Ramsey line that
Tivo was so wonderful it didn't need cable.

After the cable deal fell though I predicted that TIVO would not
exists in it's current form within 6 months of the NDS product hitting
the market.

Apparently Ramsay read my posts and got scared shitless. After a lame
quarterly "earnings" call where he was shown for the boob that he is
by investors everywhere the cable deal is mysteriously back on the
table.

And with my favorite cable company no less. One that I've been saying
for months has been on the cutting edge of technology and doing an
excellent job providing service.

You dillweeds scoffed at Comcast. I'm sure now you'll be singing a
different tune.

Welcome to the club.

Pretty much all the things I've been saying for months needed to
happen have happened. Ramsey blinked and cut a deal with Comcast,
the best cable company out there.

Good for him.

As Clint Eastwood once said a man's got to know his limitations.
Ramsey now knows that he could not run a succesfull company
on his own (just as I've been saying) and he's now worshiping at the
altar of Comcast.

I'll have another post soon asking for predictions from all you
geniuses. Feel free to not participate, I'll understand your need
to not get embarrased again with your wrongheaded and stupid
analysis.

    Oh, I just can't resist this . . .

    Sean, you've been saying for months now that your beloved Comcast's DVR
    is better than Tivo's DVR offerings, and that both the hardware and
    software are an improvement to that of Tivo's DVRs. If this is true,
    then why does Comcast want to make a deal with Tivo? Don't they already
    have a better product themselves?

    There are only 2 possible responses here:

    - Yes, Comcast's software is better and Comcast is pissing away money
    and isn't as brilliant as I say they are.

    - No, Comcast's software isn't better (note: I will fully grant, and
    always have, that their hardware is more advanced), and I was a complete
    idiot for insisting all along that it was.

    And, if the announced timelines hold, they'll still have their own HD
    cable box out before the Comcast software release.

    >All you Tivo Rumpswabs in this group parroted the Ramsey line that
    >Tivo was so wonderful it didn't need cable.

    And I say that's still true. As I just said in another post 'nice to
    have' or 'good for business' != 'need'.

    This deal certainly changes the balance, and probably the direction of
    the company to a degree, but that doesn't mean it was the only viable
    path.

    >And with my favorite cable company no less. One that I've been saying

    Doing such an excellent job, and with such magnificent software, that
    they're willing to pay to replace it with TiVo's software and service.

    Sean, do we really need to dig up your countless posts where you say
    TiVo's software is old and out of date and dead? Nice of you to duck
    the whole issue of your favorite cable company doing a deal with a
    'Dead Company Walking' and talking about how great their software is
    and how it will be a gain for their customers to have TiVo.

    You look like a complete ass... as usual.

    >You dillweeds scoffed at Comcast. I'm sure now you'll be singing a
    >different tune.

    Who scoffed at Comcast? Several of us have scoffed at te software
    used on most cable company DVRs. I guess we were right, Comcast seems
    to agree with us.

    I knew you'd try to pretend you never slammed TiVos software and
    service, kind of embarassing for your 'favorite cable company' to
    shove your words back down your throat, eh Sean?

    I was looking forward to your reaction, just to see how low you'd sink
    - and you performed as expected.

    I've seen less squirming from worms on the hook. So we've gone from

    This is really just delicious.

    My belief is that TiVo did not include this feature, because they don't
    want you to use the box that way.

    The disk free indicator is something for the user to worry about. What
    does the user do when the disk gets near full? Go through and delete the
    suggestions, then shows you've already watched, the oldest shows you
    haven't watched, and shows that you don't watch (you scheduled a season
    pass for Alias but haven't watched it in 3 weeks...) This is what the
    software does (more or less). (And shame on you for not watching Jennifer
    Garner in all her spy-garb-wearing glory!)

    Without the indicator, the TiVo has no limitations. It's a magical little
    box that turns a finite disk into infinite capacity. The sleight of hand
    is that it secretly rolls the least-desirable content off when it needs
    space, but the audience doesn't see that. The point is, it does precisely
    what you would do anyways...so why worry about it?

    It's part of the experience that the TiVo company wants you to have. You
    can drive your car, or be driven. There's no technical reason they
    couldn't put some sort of indicator in the interface. The box certainly
    knows when the disk is near full, since it pre-emptively deletes things to
    make room for up-coming recordings. This missing feature is obviously not
    an oversight by the designers - it was a conscious decision. I would bet
    that this led to a very long, heated argument between some TiVo staff.
    But abstracting the nitty-gritty from the end-user has been successful for
    a number of companies.

    That said, I still think it should be a hidden option - like an S-P-S code
    or something to enable it. IMHO, having the option is better than not
    having the option. Hell, list it as "1Kb blocks used" in the system
    information screen, so joe-user won't know what it is.

    As pertains to Tivo being more stable and a bit more expensive, then
    perhaps. But it breaks down in other ways, such as Windows is typically
    considered more flexible (though OS X has changed that a lot), whereas
    Tivo is the more flexible option here. It's a worthwhile comparison though.

    Wouldn't hurt, though I think the current hack is pretty simple.

    I was thinking more in terms of the philosophies of the companies. And
    I'm not trying to start a Holy War (remember that I'm not a Mac or Windows
    fanatic...) The way it looks to me is that Apple is much more focused on
    creating an experience, where as Microsoft is, well, Microsoft. I guess
    I'm thinking mostly of the interface - how the user uses the software.

    When I think of Apple, I think of:
    Consistency across the OS and all applications
    (not just look, but buttons, menus, etc)
    Expected behavior
    Easy on the eyes

    These seem to be important to both Apple and TiVo. I'm sure they are
    important to MS too, but not important enough to make it into the final
    product. When I think about MS, I just picture the Exchange
    Administrator. Someone at MS thought that was a Good Idea.

    Now to relate this to TiVo - I didn't have to page through the manual to
    figure out the controls - I pushed the button that I would assume is the
    right one, and more or less it was. And I'm not talking about "duh -
    pause must be || and play must be >" But little details, like when I hit
    the TiVo button on the remote during a program - if I'm near the end it
    asks if I want to delete it or save it, and then returns me to the TiVo
    menu. If I'm not near the end, it assumes (correctly) that I'm not done
    watching it and doesn't even ask whether I want to delete it. This should
    be an example of expected behavior - but I wasn't expecting it, because
    we've been so abused by bad interfaces.

    Why was there no CLI in MacOS prior to OS X? Because Apple didn't want to
    detract from the Macintosh experience by having the user even think about
    something as (relatively) complicated and difficult to learn as a DOS-like
    CLI. I think this is the same reason TiVo doesn't have a free space
    indicator. They don't want you to think *you* have to delete things to
    free up space. Let the system handle it so you don't have to think about
    it.

    Why do the Win admins at work have to go and archive/delete the event logs
    from the servers every week? MS' solution to the event logging growth was
    to pop-up a little window telling you to do something about it when the
    logs got "full". But this is completely contrary to what computers are
    for. If the computer knows the logs are full, why make it the user's
    problem? Just archive and clear them. 99% of the time this is what the
    admin is going to do anyways, and since you're archiving them, it's a
    non-destructive operation. For the other 1%, of course the action to take
    should be configurable. But the default should be for the majority.

    TiVo's job is to make TV watching easy and enjoyable. It's not about
    taking control, time-shifting, or watching something multiple times,
    transferring shows between devices. Those are features. The PHILOSOPHY
    of TiVo is ease and enjoyment. And the TiVo designers knew that putting a
    free space indicator in the interface would change the way that people use
    the product. And that change wasn't using TiVo for what it is. Ideas
    like "set it and forget it" and "self-managed" come to mind.

    It's a hard notion to accept. At least, it was hard for me to accept the
    first time I came across it in a programming project that I was working
    on. The feature takes 5 minutes to write and adds value to the product.
    But the value it adds doesn't nearly compensate for the value it takes
    away from the self-managed aspect. The user only thinks they want to
    manage the disk usage. But in reality, it not only takes away an
    important reason for using the product in the first place, it also
    highlights a finite resource, and both of these detract from the
    experience.

    So why do I still think it should be a hidden option, if it dilutes the
    experience? For the 1% that can use it "right".

    Heh... I thought that was the Motorola & Scientific Atlanta philospohy.

    Their users are the ones who wonder if their boxes will have decided to
    record the programs that day.

    Randomly deciding not to record programs, and randomly deleting
    everything, are much more common on the Cable Co DVRs than on TiVos.

    As I programmed my Tivo to record this weekend's games using a Wishlist, it
    told me that it was going to delete certain programs early, gave me a
    scrolling list, and asked if I wanted to proceed or cancel.

    What's annoying is that no NCAA game other than the first one is going
    to start on time, so you have to record the next show, or pad. I still
    forget that occassionally, and don't get the end of the game.

    No, and I wouldn't claim anything like that.

    But, it _is_ true, not because I said it, but because Scientific Atlanta &
    Motorola haven't worked out all the bugs in their products yet.

    I subscribe to my Cable co's internal (Cox-only) DVR newsgroup, and I
    constantly find new reports of "My DVR didn't record anything last night",
    and "Help, all my recordings are gone".

    On the other hand, I seldom see such reports here. Yes, there are
    occassional problems here, but deletions & failed recordings are much more
    commonly reported there.

    About half the shows I record are strictly speculation; the descriptions
    pique my curiosity. We rarely end up watching them. About half of the
    remaining shows turn out to be either reruns or crummy; we don't watch them
    either. I would estimate that we end up with 1 hour of useful programming
    for every 4 hours recorded.

    Another category of recording is that done for others--friends that don't
    have several VCRs. Those recordings frequently duplicate our own tape. It
    turns out to be easier to record the program separately on another VCR so we
    don't have to make a copy.

    LOL
    I saw or read something about a study done where
    people are feeling pressure from their TiVo to keep
    caught up with recorded programs.

    I have several wishlists recording anything that has certain actors and
    performers, or certain words, so I can catch "60 minutes" when they
    interview people at my favorite companies.

    That leads to lots of strays. Or repeats of things that are aired a lot,
    and show up in the Now Playing list every 30 days.

    Or various talk shows, where I only want to watch the five minutes that
    that person is on.

    On the other hand, wrapping TiVo around HD recording is pretty much the
    killer product and works great...far better than any cable company supplied
    DVR. TiVo is quite logically waiting for cable companies to stop fighting
    the already-required CableCard rollout dates before they spend serious
    money on the final stages of development of a CableCard TiVo.
