Realize that tivo knows a lot about us as a group..... they get their info from each of us individualy... well ok nothing new... is it?

This wouldn't really apply to most of us here. You need a phone line connected and your log files intact for any of this info to make it's way to Tivo. Anyone with Xtreme and logsnull or similar xPlusz utility installed would be exempt from this. I'm not sure that Tivo gets this info from DTivo subscribers anyway since it goes through DTV. I don't know how much info gets shared between DTV and Tivo when it comes to viewing habits and such.
