It just shows the general confusion over this. I can almost guarantee
that some consumers will buy the new converter thinking they have to
when their cable box will do it for them.

About a month ago Comcast announced another scheme to connect TV to
the cable. I am not sure if this is a variation of CableCard or yet
another format. Comcast did say they want to eliminate the box
completely. The Motorola boxes are their biggest problem systemwide as
they fail at an alarming rate.

I have the Tivo Comcast interface and it was comical at how much
manpower was used to set it up. They had to send someone to the house
to switch my HD box DVR from the 6000 series to the 3000 and then
download the Tivo GUI.

It took 2 hours.
