re: cablecards - the idea forcing them to use cablecards is to make the cable companies eat their own dogfood. If they just required cable companies to support cablecards, they could "support" them in such a halfassed way that it would never be viable from a consumer standpoint to actually want to use them. However, by forcing Cox and other companies to use cablecards, they have to make sure that the implementation works and works properly.
Also, does anyone know what CCI flags are in use on the HDNET channels? I'd only get them if I could record them in HD (I dont necessarily care about copying them onto my PC via TiVo2Go, but I need to at least record them).
