Customers of Cox Communications Cable TV service may have TiVo as an option
A recent post on Slashdot has brought attention to a
apparently sent to a customer by Cox Communications which is a digital cable, phone, and broadband internet provider in select markets.
begins by asking the participant a few questions about their current television services and eventually leads into a question regarding DVR products and services and the participants preferences:
As you may or may not know, Cox offers DVR service. The DVR is built into the Cox digital receiver box and is operated using a Cox digital service remote control. While Cox currently offers its own DVR service, the Cox DVR may soon be powered by TiVo, and include the features that TiVo owners have come to expect. If Cox were to offer digital cable service with a TiVo branded DVR for about the same price as your satellite service provider charges for DVR service, how likely would you be to switch from satellite TV to Cox cable that featured this TiVo branded DVR service?
After reading this question it is no secret that Cox Communications is considering TiVo as an option or alternative for DVR service aside from its current Motorola-based digital DVR cable box. From reading comments on the TiVo Community message boards, many posters are looking forward to the switch to a TiVo-based DVR system.

And my FireWire is DISABLED! I've tried in vain to transfer to connect and transfer my HD movies off.

I have the 8300HD, and it has working eSATA. As for the whole TiVo thing, I pay 19.98 per month extra for an HD DVR. It's 9.99 more than the standard non-HD receiver, and considering it'd take over THREE YEARS before buying an aftermarket HD DVR would be more cost-effective...it's still a good deal.
This TiVo deal would complicate that - from what I understand the pricks charge an arm and a leg for HD service.
