Well, that's a thought, but it does add an extra expense to TiVo which only some of TiVo's customers will take advantage of.

If TiVo is going to spend the money anyway, it would be much cheaper in the long run to simply build in an actual Ethernet port to the TiVo hardware, rather than buying a more expense USB-to-Ethernet dongle and adding that to every TiVo box sent to retailers or customers.

So at best including a dongle with every TiVo would only be a temporary fix, until such time as all TiVos come with built in Ethernet ports as standard.
