What's the percentage of Mac users?

Does anyone know if Tivo has published a breakdown between Mac and Windows user? I ask because I suspect that whereas mac has a less than 5 percent market share, it may be much higher among Tivo users: cool technology and Mac users tend to be early adapters.

With the advent of HMO, I suspect that Mac users (if they knew about it) are ideal customers. Although the hardware is not at all Mac friendly (for wireless, as well as wired networks) the Mac software (iTunes and iPhoto) are made for Tivo.

I would tend to agree. Mac users would seem to be the type that would key into TiVo and HMO. I have a iMac and have set up HMO. I love the whole "digital hub" idea and find the iMac and TiVo a nice combination.

Of course I'm still wating for TiVo to allow HMO to access AAC music files from my iTunes.

Why doesn't Apple try and make a deal with DirecTV to have the HDVR2s be HMO enabled like they did with TiVo and their SAs? DirecTV could benefit because more people would buy other receivers to network them throughout their homes. The ability for Mac users to do music and photos would then be there. Now, what would Apple get out of the deal?

Because DirecTv doesn't know how to run their own company

Back to the topic --

I have a whole house full of Mac & TiVo users here. In addition to the two TiVo units there are 3 iBooks, 1 PowerBook G4, 1 PowerMac G4 (dual 1GHz), 1 iMac (revision A), 1 PowerMac 7600, 1 LC III, 1 LC, and 1 SE/30 (we've been collecting Macs for longer than we've been collecting TiVo's)

No Macs here.... just two Series 2's and 3-5 WinXP PCs (depends on how many notebooks I lugged home from work)

I'm a Mac user too, and just switch from C-Band sat to DirecTV w/ Tivo. Given M$s push into the tivo space with HP and others, I'd say its even a better bet that Tivo users are Mac users, more then the PC domain in general (5%).

Also, I thought read that the Apple Store or Web site was going to start to sell Tivos.
