When I say download those are "vague terms" but I would assume we don't have to talk about every byte that gets passed for handshaking and establishing connection, downloading data, etc. BECAUSE it should not be necessary for the discussion.
So tell me in the model above what cost is #2 and #3 to Tivo?

There might be some point to this if it worked that way. But as has been pointed out it doesn't today. This was discussed in detail in the other thread about this. Next time, "study up" before beginning a rant.

As I stated, when TiVo can figure out how to cut costs, they'd be wise to pass them along. Unfortunately, I believe the LAN delivery of guide data to multiple TiVos has some real potential for fraud.
