My take on this is:
You have HD-TV, you love it, and wish TiVo supported it. You feel since there is a good chunk of programming out there for HD, TiVo is really dropping the ball here. You also feel since you have HD, and there is enough programming to keep you happy, HD is catching on.
You don't have HD-TV and are perfectly happy without it and / or can't justify the price of it. You see no reason for TiVo to support it, and would rather see TiVo implement some other features. You probably don't know anyone with HD, so you don't see what the big deal is.
The reality is, HD TV is very confusing the consumer and is very slow to catch on. It is catching on slower than just about anything else in the electeonics world. You can't compare it to DVD, since DVD has been one of the fastest. Unless you are a hi-fi buff, you just don't care to take the time to investigate all the different HD-TV connections, resolutions, recievers, etc.
I think another reality, is people don't really care if stuff is HD. Many people are perfectly happy watching friends or survivor on their 32" tv's in NTSC.
TiVo isn't missing the boat on this one, HD-TV is missing the boat. Until there is a HD PVR on the market that is readily available, this converstion is just speculation.
