Tell that to all the people I know who bought ReplayTV instead of TiVo, even after I had explained why TiVo was superior, precisely because of the reasons that you dismiss, and for other reasons you chose to ignore.

Go read a lot of web reviews of TiVo where slowness of the initial setup over phone lines, and difficulty setting up networking, were the number one reasons why the reviewers recommended Replay or some other DVR or DVR/DVD-player/recorder, precisely because TiVo didn't think to make this a "no brainer" by simply adding an Ethernet port.

This is one instance where I can point to and show precisely how TiVo has lost potential sales and potential new subscribers. It simply isn't a debateable question anymore.

Add the d_mned Ethernet ports already. This has nothing to do with an "either/or" argument pitting Ethernet against USB. That's a red herring argument and always has been.
