Advertisements I have a question. As it stands the tivo 3 can only do a one way communication with the cable card so you can't do a PPV or VOD. I am pretty sure a good number of series 3 units are attached to a home network. My question is why couldn't tivo and the cable company have something where when you select watch a PPV or VOD, it would send the signal over the network to the cable company to activate the channel and then the cable company sends the activation code down the line to the box to activate it. Of course I am sure the Cable companies would not want to do this. I know there would be some logistics that would have to be worked out but since you have tell Tivo which cable company you are using and the zip code, that could ensure that the Tivo would send the data to the correct Cable company server to activate the card and they could probably work something out that would inform the server which house is asking for the information so that it activates the correct device. Of course it would be better if they could do two-way over the cable since everyone would be able to take advantage of it. I would think that using the network would be a great idea even though there will be people who don't have a network and probably would not be able to take advantage of it but it would be better then nothing.
