Just as an aside, a quick grep of the source turns up more TiVo than Digeo copyrights in the kernel. Admittedly that's a pretty crappy measure of relative worth, though.
One rather off-topic question -- if it's the TiVo bootloader that vetos loading an unsigned kernel, what stops someone from changing the bootloader? Maybe it needs a hardware hack (I have no idea), but that surely hasn't stopped the community before. (Xbox, as I recall, required a hardware mod to load a different OS.)
