Comcast is rumored to be deploying its DVR device in November in the Seattle area. It will supposedly be priced at $9.95 a month and require some level of digital service. Perhaps the digital light (the unadvertised $5.00 per month rental for the cable converter box) would work with it. It may also have 2 tuner cards, enabling one to record two shows at once and watch a third. Supposedly, 80 hours of harddrive, which I presume is a 40GB HDD and that the 80hours is at the lowest quality setting. This is supposed to not be advertised heavily, but available in early to mid-November. Not advertised heavily because they don't have a good supply of DVR boxes. If they have a box shortage, though, you would think they would restrict to people with some more expensive level of digital service that is more than digital light. I think all the monthly subscription costs ($9.95 per month plus added costs for digital), coupled with the uncertainty whether/when it will be available, make it chancey. I would appreciate other people's views.
I'll be subscribing to Comcast in Washington, DC. If I supply my own HD DVR (Motorola DCT6208), do I still have to pay Comcast the monthly DVR service fee? Can I avoid paying the DVR fee and pay only the HD fee?
