    Interesting survey. Maybe it’s just me, but they didn’t seem to tailor the questions to TiVo very well; they didn’t seem to understand exactly what TiVo Suggestions (“recommendations,” in their verbiage) were.

    It looked like a general survey, with perhaps only names changed. For instance, when I tell TiVo to record a show, I’m not really purchasing anything. It could just have easily been a survey for Amazon or NetFlix or iTunes…which I think was the point. Rather than a survey for each of the four, a boilerplate was developed. I don’t think the lack of fine tuning will change the results in any way.

    I agree, it looked very general. I do think the results will be a bit skewed, though; since several of the questions basically didn’t apply, how could the answers be very helpful or enlightening?
