The idea was if you could somehow take a generic [set-top] box and download the TiVo software over the wire, if you could order it from your cable company like HBO it would be an incredible product, Rogers said. However, according to Rogers, the development was much easier said than done. It was an enormous piece of rocket science to work with hardware, chips we dont control, he said. Comcasts TiVo project, originally announced in March 2005, has been beset by delays. In May, Comcast expected to begin commercial rollouts in August. Before that, the companies expected the DVRs to be available in a majority of Comcast markets before the end of 2006. Rogers said Comcast has now begun rolling out the TiVo-enabled Motorola boxes in the New England region and that Cox Communications, which has a similar deal with TiVo, will follow soon after. Thats about 50% of the cable industry between the two of them, he said."
