Due to the untimely demise of TiVo's outsourced sales unit, TiVo has temporarily halted direct sales of new DVR units. Some posts on the TiVo Community boards indicate that the company that went under was called Metron, and it handled all the direct-from-TiVo phone and Internet sales until recently. TiVo is currently redirecting all DVR sales to resellers like Best Buy, and will not sell gift subscriptions or TiVo-branded accessories (like remotes) for the time being. What with the increasing criticism TiVo has been getting for its Hollywood kiss-ups, this definitely wasn't a good week for the DVR pioneer.
