This has been debated to death, and everyone is entitled to their opinion. I agree with Brad on many things, but on this one I have to disagree.

A dedicated Ethernet port is the way to go. This will free up the USB port(s)for any add-ons that may come our way. Still holding my breath...

A dedicated Ethernet port frees us up from the mind-numbingly slow software releases from TiVo. Where's the USB 2.0 drivers?

Dongles are too much trouble. They require extra space behind the unit, they cost extra $$$, and we're pretty much tied into the chip sets that TiVo decides to support.

There's just no good reason not to include it.
