TiVo have just sued EchoStar for patent infringement. So I don't think they will let you register it.

Unlikely to be an issue, with any luck. The patents in question have nowt to do with DVB, and EchoStar make a heck of a lot of satellite receivers and other STBs which TiVo really needs to control. It would be like TiVo not adding IR codes for a new Pace STB because they make the Sky+ box, ignoring the cable, DVB, satellite and other boxes that Pace make.

Anyway, we'll see...

The above opinions are mine, and Edinburgh Uni can't have them.
