EFF Article on 'Who Killed Tivo To Go'.

This is a good read on the slanted playing field that Tivo and other CableCARD equiped Consumer devices face.

I recommend reading it, and using the link there to submit the formletter, or your own comments to the FCC on CableCARDs, the Integration Ban, and other Digital Cable TV unfairness you may be seeing.

I was going to submit it to digg, but someone already did 99 days ago. I doubt any digging now will bring it to the front page. http://www.digg.com/hardware/Who_Killed_TiVoToGo_2

I submitted the FCC form letter. I suggest every S3 owner does the same.

I think we need this thread to be a sticky. Moderators?

Does anyone know if there's a similar type of form having to do with switched digital video? I wrote a complaint to the fcc through their standard form, but it seemed to be telecom-centric, rather than allowing for complaints against cable companies.

It looks like most of the FCC decisions have already been made.

I certainly haven't read all of the documents, but I think all the recent decisions were about not letting the cable companies drag their feet any more on CableCARD STBs. I think fighting the over-protective DRM is still very relevant. We need to get the FCC to tell CableLabs and media owners to lighten up a little.

Yes, and in addition even if they have made some decisions as one voice we can try and get them to change these decisions.

Also complained about Charter's terrible support of cablecards.
