The reason Netflix Canada does not work on TiVos is really business related, as andrela said, that HD TiVo models are not officially supported in Canada, and with that there are not a whole lot of users to make it worthwhile to even support it (as in write a Canadian or a dual USA/Canada Netflix app.)

You could look at it as techcal in how Netflix constructs their apps to be different enough for USA and Canada.

The business decision is largely TiVos to not market or support the HD boxes to Canadians, therefor nor find it worthwhile to add Netflix Canada support.

Yes, the larger picture is that Canadian cable providers are not obligated to use Cablecards, at least the same way US poviders are, which is largely why TiVo is not trying for Canada.

TiVo, as an OTA DVR, is pretty expensive really.

The only OTA DVR+ Netflix device for Canada, would be an HTPC, as I see it anyhow.

I would consider a DTV-PAL DVR plus Roku box, if an HTPC is not suitable.
