If your cable company was clueless then obviously they aren't releasing them yet. The technology is definitely available as well as the hardware.
But like all good things, we just have to wait for a big user demand in order for the cable companies to justify the added expense of buying the equipment.
Eventually they will come, I've heard by the spring 2004 in most areas.
Just write them a letter asking for it, an hope others do the same.
The good thing is when they do get them, you can just trade in your 2 existing boxes and have the latest technology and have no out of pocket expense! Since you are renting, they incur all the loss of having to upgrade your hardware, not you!
Probably why they need to wait to justify the expense they already incurred on the current equipment. :)
