So if the FCC has their way then CableCards will be terminated or powered off? When is this suppose to occur, and how do we return to our roots of just a Coax connection of 100 and below. Most of the signals are switching to Switched Digital and more analog will follow very soon. So this leaves the average TiVo with in a sense a Pandora's Box. We can embrace the digital needs and use Ondemand as primary source with OTA or giveup on our devices and plug our new HDMI machines into LCD's, HD, or 3DTV/Plasma things. Whichever you choose the counter is ticking down, and what will happen with Tivo will contracts expire because the need to use the service has been reduced? what's your take and what will you do? For us, we are already primarily using HuluPlus, Youtube, and Plex. Regardless of this decision January 2014 we are pulling the plug on our cable because we just don't use it as much as before. Besides the networks continue to cancel and pull shows there really is no need to watch broadcast for us. So why the delay for us, we are in legal binding contract with our apartment. Hey you can add service to increase your rent that's called an addendum but nope your damned if your try to decrease your rent.. So this January we will remove that add-on promptly. It's stupid really $75 for cable, 2.95 for the CableCard for Tivo / RR / Phone separately from Brighthouse. It really sucked we were unable to get a bundle bill with the cable.. LONG STORY. Don't want to go there.
