Hey FDO, I am a Cable Guy for Charter... CableCARDs plain suck, imho.. I have spent hours upon hours troubleshooting unfamiliar DVR's and Televisions, and been back for repeted calls for the damned things. It's a great IDEA, but getting one thing to work with hundreds of manufacturers and dozens of service providers is just downright hard. On that note - there are advantages to having a cable box from your cable company.. Replace if broken for no charge, upgrades over time to newer and better boxes, on demand services (which you probably havn't experienced with your current setup, thousands of free programs to watch whenever you want to)... And if you buy the ultra fancy new Tivo for 500 bucks, you would have paid for your DVR for 2 and a half years... With the way tech goes now, I wouldn't be surprized if that TiVo is broken or obsolete in that time. Anyways, food for thought.
