ENGADGET: "TiVo’s VCR funeral – Yup, it was totally a publicity stunt, and yes, we totally fell for it, but dozens of people with VHS tapes in hand hit up TiVo’s VCR funeral at DigitalLife yesterday. Everyone who dropped an old tape in the casket was given a wristband guaranteeing them a free 40-hour TiVo — as long as they signed up for a year of service, that is."

No exactly Lights Jubilee, but still an interesting concept.  And perhaps take some consumer heat off of the recent TIVO DRM deals with big media.
