User dt_dc posted about this at TiVoCommunity.com. TiVo has filed in opposition to two petitions, one from Charter and one from Verizon. There is a pending FCC requirement that would force all cable operators to use CableCARD on their own boxes, and Charter petitioned for a waiver on “low-cost, limited capability” boxes. Verizon petitioned for a waiver as a new entrant to the market. TiVo filed in opposition of Charter and in opposition of Verizon.
Interestingly, it also indicates that they spent $12 million on R&D for the Series3.
