Can't speak to the TiVo HD OTA question from experience...we're waiting for TiVo to iron things like that out before we replace our S2's. Based on that Ive been keeping a close watch on the umpteen threads that are discussing these issues in one way or another and it doesnt appear that cable cards have any effect on OTA processing and frankly Im not sure how they could.MirclMax said:I'm getting close to pulling the trigger and getting a THD ... but I had a quick question .. I know you can do OTA without cablecards .. and that the problems don't pop in until the CC's are installed .. but ..
My question is.. once the CC's are in, do the OTAs still work flawlessly, or are they then affected by the same problem?
And if I can bug people for an opinion .. Ranking between 0% and 100% .. how confident are you that the current problems can be resolved via software updates (rather than faulty hardware). (A response of 100% would be indicating that you are completely sure that TiVo *could* eventually fix the problems with updates).
Thanks. And sorry for yet another thread on this sort of thing.
As far as an opinion about TiVo getting the macroblocking issues resolved? I'm 100% confident that they will. Having used TiVo for a little more than six years now, everything that's come along has been resolved. Some things haven't been addressed as quickly as I would have liked at times, but they have been taken care of.
