Got a service message from Tivo last night with the title 'An Important Message on Privacy from Tivo' which sounded boring, but I read it anyway. The interesting part is the third sentence of the second paragraph:
Hmm, that sounds pretty cool if it's true that users will be able to move video to their TiVo for playback. I would guess it'd require an application to transcode your own video to TiVo MPEG2 format and send off to your TiVo, and perhaps a new version of the TiVo desktop is coming to make that happen.
update: Dave Zatz passes along the offical TiVo site explanation for the policy change.
