But only to the non-HD Motorola boxes.
Non-HD motorola boxes =
How many of them do they have in the valley?
I am considering switching to satellite because of it.
bomb, where does it mention the motorola non hd boxes? Is that from another story or am I just blind?
It says select, but I have heard the same thing online as well.
cox has motorola boxes? Mine's the hd scientific atlanta. Weird they'd have boxes from two manufacturers instead of an exclusive deal with one.
IIRC, the Motorola boxes are the non-HD DVRs and SA are the HD DVRs.
I have both types of boxes, just digital cable boxes, and also an HD DVR. Both are SA, but most areas of the country have these motorola boxes, rather than the SA ones.
Most of the valley is pretty much screwed.
We are also screwed with On Demand. San Diego has had dozens of HBO shows and movies available on demand for over two years now.
holy crap, i'm gonna call him bomb all the time now.
It wasnt in that story, but in an old press release. Manufacturer appears to differ by market;
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 27, 2004--Cox Communications (NYSE: COX) announced today that customers in more than 95 percent of its markets will have access to digital video recorder (DVR) service by the end of 2004. Upcoming market launches include Orange County, Calif.; Omaha, Neb; Roanoke and Hampton Roads, Va.; New England; New Orleans and Baton Rouge, La.; Macon, Ga.; Tulsa, Okla. and Middle America Cox. DVR service in these markets will be delivered via the Motorola DCT-6412 set-top box.

Cox Joins Comcast in TiVo Guide Deal
Subscribers to Comcast and now Cox will eventually be able to choose the TiVo navigational system as the primary guide for their digital cable service, thanks to a TiVo/Cox deal etched last Thursday.
Customers who choose TiVo over Cox's existing navigational system will be able to do so without a box swap, TiVo officials said. Cox's digital set-top footprint is about 50/50 Motorola and Scientific Atlanta; SA's boxes are expected to lead the deployment. Meanwhile, over at Comcast, which is about 90 percent Motorola, work continues to get the TiVo system ready for widespread deployment, probably sometime in '07.
For as long as the TiVo service has been in market, observers have wondered: Why can they not strike a mutually agreeable deal with cable providers? No great surprise: Money, in the form of per-unit licensing fees, appears to have been the hang-up. However, TiVo CEO Tom Rogers, who is considerably more "plugged in" to the cable side than prior TiVo honchos, aims to correct that.
Et tu, Time Warner Cable? That'd be a tough one, given the MSO's deep investment into its own navigational platform, know variously as "MDN" for "Mystro Digital Navigator," and "ODN," for "OCAP Digital Navigator," which is basically the MDN written in Java such that it is OCAP-compatible.
And from one more article;
Cox users wanting a TiVo powered Cox DVR will have to wait as the service isn’t launching till the first half of 2007, in select markets.
Ok, but where is it saying that those with HD Sci Atlanta boxes won't get to download the Tivo software?
I interpret it as anyone who has Cox, regardless of definition or brand, will get the software upgrade in 2007.
That's a good thing then.
