Wow, three local-paper quotes in the same day. According to the P-I (via AP), DirecTiVo boxes are in short supply all of a sudden due to unexpected demand. DirecTV lowered their prices to $99 from $200, and suddenly they can't keep up. Apparently they sold 150,000 boxes last quarter.
I love my TiVos; I basically refuse to watch normal TV anymore. It's a cliche, but TiVo really changes the way you approach TV watching. It's also the best consumer electronics interface that I've ever seen. I'll probably buy the Pioneer TiVo DVD burner once the price drops, half because the TiVo UI is so much better then any DVD player I've ever used.
I guess I'm a TiVo snob :-).
