Are you referring to the Tivo patent?

In the last paragraph from multichannel it mentions one of the Rovi features Comcast removed. That would likely be the biography info Rovi provided. In the article from ipwatchdog it appears that Comcast either hasn't or may not renew a licensing deal with Tivo.  That may soon have an effect on existing features with the X1 platform.
