Re: Surprise
I'm usually skeptical of delays in enforcing rules, but this one seems legit. Giving Tivo a break seems reasonable especially since as noted they are the main source of the retail versions of the box. While "the CableCARD mandate was meant to create more competition in the retail market..." it's not really clear that it actually provides much competition though.

Cablecos only started requiring cablecards in my neighborhood a few years ago.
I suppose I should be thankful for the upgrade that my cableco gave our neighborhood when it made slightly faster internet speeds available, but then cut off all the previously "free" cable channels that didn't require a cablebox. I didn't need to get a TiVo until then....

Re: Surprise
Several MSO's are using TiVo's platform under license in their set tops. I tried the non-TiVo DVR equipped STB from my cable provider and promptly returned it. I've been using TiVo with CableCard for years - the only occasional glitch comes from the switched digital conversion that TWC underwent and having to use a sidecar device to convert the feed back.

Re: Surprise
I didn't even realize that TiVo was doing this. The reason why I'm amazed this is still a thing is because cable operators have their own set top boxes that record now. Not sure how TiVo still even has a profitable business as a result.

I'm surprised TiVo continues to sell product given the uncertain future of CableCARD.
