Personally, I'd be happy to have the opposite feature. Like Google's other topic-specific search engines (e.g. Mac, Linux), it would be nice to search for a television show, and via the new Tivo permalink (or better yet, a stadardized one that all PVRs can use), just click on a Record Now link.

One of the things that make Tivo good is it's searching capability. The ability to search for shows by keyword, actor, director, is pretty cool. Having a Google search that could do that and more, would be great. Adding searches for television bittorrents as well, things start getting really interesting.
