While Tivo isn't obviously an Information Appliance, I'm including it because:

  • it's a Linux box inside, so theoretically capable of anything

  • it's already been hacked by users so they can control it remotely via web interface, etc.

I think this is important to consider because it shows an entry vector for a Home Server.

As of October 2009, Tivo has 2.76 million subscribers in the US[17][18], down from a peak of 4.36 million in January 2006. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tivo
