Re: What's the point
said by Dodge:Well the only things that I can think of are:
So what am I as a consumer gaining here?
- it works on most plain (non-DVR) boxes, which costs you less money (you don't have to pay extra for DVR boxes on other sets, to get DVR on them)
- it basically gets you "anyroom" DVR, again w/plain boxes
- you don't have to worry about power outages/glitches in YOUR house affecting the DVR (but in their network instead)
All in all, I'd still rather keep the control of MY DVR in MY own box, thank you. Also, NOT being able to skip commercials (30 sec skip) IS a totally deal breaker for me.
