Hey, Michael, if you're looking to lower those numbers even further you could offer boxless HD in Lexington too!

These numbers surprise anyone??? When Cable Labs makes it damn near impossible to get a device approved there is no incentive to develop such devices. Not to mention Tru2way is up the creek and AllVid is the "strategic direction". All of the other products require a relative costly upfront investment which can be justified by the amortization over a couple years. Most consumers don't want to bother.

TIVO rules the DVR and to be honest, Insights on demand menus and guide sucks compared to tive, but I just can't justify the TIVO cost. I wish some cable company would buy them.

As a CableCARDs go they let you get all the same broadcast channels and programs in SD and HD that are offered by the cable company. The trade-off though is that if you use a third party device like a TiVo, or any other CableCARD ready device you loose the video on demand from the cable company.

I have a few TiVo DVR and use CableCARDs but I also have the insight DVRs. A year ago I would have said "pfft, ill skip the insight DVR" but I am on the verge of canceling all the TiVo boxes but one. Eventually I would like to be able to cancel them all, if only the search functions allowed me to search by actor, director, ect. *hint hint hint*


I'd be all over a cable card for my three-tuner HDHomeRun Prime, if getting the service level that actually made it useful would not DOUBLE the cost of my Insight cable bill.
