But the ComcasTivo allows you to search on demand content. It also work fine with Switched Digital Video.Justin Thyme said:Except it really is Tivo lite. No internet IPTV, no transfering video to laptops or ipods, no multi room viewing, no Yahoo features, no upgrading your machine up to to 2 Terabytes. No playing video from P2P networks.
But otherwise- just the same.
So there will be plenty to step up to when moving to a standalone Tivo.
The monthly DVR fees should be close to what you would pay for Tivo service on a stand alone Tivo. Plus there are no upfront hardware costs. Even the upcoming $300 S3-lite could have a hard time competing in Comcast and Cox neighborhoods where you can run the Tivo software on a DVR that you don't have to buy.
