As others have commented, TiVo is nothing short of revolutionary. Combining ease of use, superb picture quality and the best EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) around, you are left with a superb product. However, as good as it is, there is room for improvement - luckily, we don't have to worry about this...
A few days ago, the latest release of software was released for TiVo - it fixed a number of niggles people were having with Nicam and crashes were resolved etc. But users weren't forced to order the software, or pay another penny - it was downloaded by TiVo automatically in the middle of the night. No user involvement was required, and it is through this that I think TiVo could make a huge impact on the UK.
So whilst we have all these excellent features on our TiVos, we can watch TV safe in the knowledge that the TiVo Team are working on new software all the time that will make it even better than it already is.
