    Replace "most" with "some" and your post is valid. Comcast seems better in this regard than most.

    Wow, gives me at least a little more appreciation for my cable company (Suddenlink). Got all of the analog equivalents so I can still use an S2 box, no copyright restrictions on non-premium cable channels, and anything tranfers (except, of course, HD to the S2).

    That's an overstatement and inaccurate in many cases. MOST Comcast regions will allow transfers for the majority of their channels with the exception of the paid movies channels i.e. HBO, SHO, etc and a small handful of other digital stations, however MOST will transfer.

    TWC is the most aggressive in locking down everything but locals, as is Frontier FiOS, but Comcast in general is pretty decent in their ratio.

    So I talked to comcast, they're not going to charge me for the cable cards, and I also found this deal: http://www3.tivo.com/promo/fastforward/ffs_july12.html?WT.ac=tivhomemarquee_ff_img

    it'll end up being $1 more a month than the cable company's dvr, but i'll get two of them and get to try it out for a year. If I like it, I may end up doing the the lifetime at some point depending on the experience and price.

    I'm also going to buy the cable modem separately, so the only thing I'll be paying comcast for is the service, which is ideal.
