I love my Tivo to death, and hope to buy two more DirecTV / Tivo combo boxes before the end of this year (one regular, one HDTV). It is still the best thing out there in terms of PVRs. But as a business, they keep getting strikes against them. Poor Tivo.
DirecTv Sold Stake in TiVo
(WSJ Online quoted by Shark73 on TivoCommunity)
In a research note Tuesday, William Blair & Co. analyst David Farina said DirecTV sold its entire 3.5 million stake in TiVo shares Monday night for about $7.20 a share. Spokesmen for both TiVo and DirecTV weren't immediately available to comment on the reported sale, which comes shortly after Eddy Hartenstein, vice chairman of DirecTV, stepped down from TiVo's board of directors.(Full Disclosure, I own ONE WHOLE SHARE of Tivo stock. Oh, I probably should have disclosed on the last post too. I own one share of Apple as well. :-) )
