    Are you predicting that groovadelic isn't going to leave DirecTV or that DirecTV isn't going to remarry TiVo? I'd agree with you on the latter, but remain agnostic on the former.

    That is most certainly not accurate, since the D10 satellite that launched yesterday won't go live until mid-September. Do you really think they'll shut off the MPEG2 HD channels without any notice?
