this is the third such book on this topic in recent weeks (I have actually reviewed the other two...want to make that all three jkeegan?). Tivo is well aware, especially since this book is heavily hyped over at AVS.

There is a fine line between writing a good text and exploiting free information for profit. so far, the books I have read have been more the prior than the latter. its one thing to produce a cd of ripped link content and sell it on ebay, or to try to sell pre-25xtremed drives. however, the books have actually done a reasonable job of congregating info, adding useful information, and such.
