Yes it might be a good deal for Cisco, I mean they'd be making a ton when TiVo wins this case, but what would TiVo get out of it? I mean it really isn't like the two are incrediblly compatible as far as a related products market goes (i.e. SBC DSL and Cingular (AT&T) Wireless), so there really wouldn't be any profit in that perspective.

Let us examine other possibilities:

Trying to raise capital?
I don't really think so, at the rate that they have been gaining a hold on their market. Plus factor in this lawsuit, does it really seem plausible that they are having enough financial woes to sell out?

New technology?What are they gonna get out of it? Their system works. It doesn't exactly need Cisco.

Ahhh well, I don't see it happening. Just my view.

Real Users find the one combination of bizarre input values that shuts down the system for days.
