The one-two punch for TiVo

As if it isn't bad enough that TiVo is cutting its own throat with the banner advertising, according to this post on Engadget, DirecTV is readying a release of its own DVR product.  According to the post, TiVo received fully 3/4 of their new subscribers last quarter from DirecTiVo.  From the post:

They wouldn’t say much about them, except that they’ll have all the same features that TiVo boxes have now (apart from the 30-second skip, which is technically a hidden feature on TiVo anyway), as well as integrated video on demand and pay-per-view features.
