    FYI Cox at least in Orange County, CA which is a Motorola Headend is using Cisco boxes for their "whole home DVR". I don't know what CableCard is being used in the box but I would assume it's Motorola just like they have for their Moto boxes and dispense for TiVo users. So it appears that it is possible to have somewhat of a hybrid system, though don't know to what extent.

    I would think that a box made by Cisco for Cox, or any other provider would ship with Cisco cable card in it.

    Could be, but either way it's talking to a Motorola headend in this case.

    No, the Cox Cisco WHDVR w/ the Trio IPG runs on tru2way, also known as CableLabs' OpenCable Application Platform.

    Both Moto and SA/Cisco CableCARDs are used in the Cisco boxes, depending on the system Headend configuration.

    Let me clarify this:
    • When Cisco DVR/STBs are ordered for a Cisco market, the units come paired with SA/Cisco CableCARDS
    • When Cisco DVR/STBs are ordered for a Motorola market, the units ship without a CableCARD and the local Cox Motorola market inserts and pairs the Moto Cards to the Cisco units.

    That's bizarre. On Comcast, they use all Cisco gear with Cisco markets, and Moto with Moto. Comcast is really dumb, as they are a Motorola company, but have a few Cisco markets here and there. They seriously need to unify and covert over everyone on to a single system.
