    What ever happen to comcast adding their Ondemand feature to TIVO Premiere's? I remember reading that San Francisco, CA were to be the first to receive this in the fall season. Has anyone received this feature yet?

    You got it wrong.

    They DO have on demand tivo. It is a modified Motorola box with tivo firmware, not a standalone Tivo Premiere.

    You can even schedule recording an on-demand show with the cablebox Tivo.

    It's been like that, 16 months since the same was announced with COX? We have yet to see it roll out anywhere. Who knows, there have been no updates since the initial press releases.

    The original Comcast/Tivo deal was announced in 2005. It took three years before we saw a product. That was the Motorola Box with Tivo software. They released it in one market and killed it three years later.

    Just some Comcast/Tivo history to think about.......

    Not exactly what you asked, but Charter is rolling out a similar feature in a little over a month in some markets.

    As for Comcast, there were significant problems with the soft-Tivo-on-the-Motorola box, but I expect that the "activate a retail box and get VOD" will get here a lot sooner.

    As long as you have a tuning adapter from Cox, you can order Adult movies and Events from the website.
