Their target market -- I was on their first beta team; this is first
hand -- is TV station websites. They get the data from the stations,
populate the database, and then provide the entire schedule page back
to the station.
PVR's are a secondary market, and to the extent they are one at all,
the money comes, almost certainly, from selling "what did people
schedule to record" data back to other people.
