I often wondered.. couldn't there be software placed in every PVR/DVR out there to communicate back to cable providers everything that is being watched on that particular device - from live, to recorded shows.. how many times was recorded show watched?

Sure they wouldn't have specific demographic information (unless people volunteered it), but they would have a much greater level of information of viewership and habits.

Wouldn't this be allowed as long as the info was anonymous? Just seems too easy.
