Just saw this article, http://online.wsj.co...2356908,00.html

Apparently quite a few TIVO’s have got the mis-impression that their owners are gay, and are therefore recording programs with gay themes - they have a feature like Amazon does where they can learn your preferences.

Now their owners are trying to tame them by e.g. recording cooking programs etc.

Some quotes from the article:
"My TiVo doesn't look at me funny anymore."
He also orders cooking shows, which softens TiVo's view of him. "I don't want it thinking I'm an ax murderer,"

:rockon: :rockon:
