bhaskins, why are you wary of CC solutions? Is it because of changes
in copy protection or something else?
None of the CableCard solutions would work any better than a ClearQAM
tuner for TW and MythTV. Thankfully for me and many others, Comcast
and Verizon are a very different story.
Anyone who purchases a STB or CC runs the risk of their provider
refusing to activate the device or demand that you give it back to
them. From what I understand, no one can own a STB for Comcast,
Verizon, or TW. I am not sure where these devices come from. Maybe
off the back of a truck. ;)
