I'm living in Denmark, where you just can't buy a TiVo, or ReplayTV for 
that matter. As far as I know, TiVo is a US only thing, and they are 
experimenting in the UK. So here in Denmark, at least, there is a market 
for MythTV.

Next question is of course what happens if its a success. Will TiVo then 
come and wipe out the competition (us!) with their much cheaper 
equipment once the market has been cultivated? I would...

But TiVo is not available everywhere, unfortunately. I had a TiVo when I 
lived in the US! Besides, MythTV is more fun...
