Customers of Cox Communications Cable TV service may have TiVo as an option

A recent post on Slashdot has brought attention to a survey request apparently sent to a customer by Cox Communications which is a digital cable, phone, and broadband internet provider in select markets.

The survey 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.

Reading this question tells you that the higher ups at Cox are at least thinking about it. Did you read the article?

I don't understand why every numbskull reader is trying to nitpick all the DailyTech articles. Certainly, some of the spelling errors seem unprofessional, but now people are just making fools of themselves trying to find fault where there is none.

Maybe I missed something but I dont think he said to attack the article in any way but simply complained about current Scientific Atlanta boxes, just like the two guys above complained about the generic TimeWarner and the Comcast Motorola boxes...

Perhaps the page has not rendered properly for you or you didn't notice that the post I'm responding to is now rated 0 (and invisible for most), but the guy I'm responding to had nothing in his post but an attempted correction of the author.
