Re the video clip. I haven't noticed anything like that though I'm in Georgia at the moment, so I can check one of my recordings. I'll try to look for it once I get back home sometime next month.


Re the overages. I seem to recall a survey I took about that, but I don't recall seeing what you posted. I doubt it will affect me and that's all I'll say on the subject, don't want to start something.

Cheers, Dave

I checked my "quota" against recent history. We are on Premier and do a fair amount of streaming (Netflix, Amazon, MLB.tv). The highest I got was March when I used about 1/3 of the quota, due to a lot of spring training games.

I hit about 240Gb in March, probably due to some new Netflix originals, other months were much lower.

Looks like our busiest month was just over 200Gb.

Don't know when this is going to happen, but it'll be welcome when it does.


Via trusted sources, we’ve learned that TiVo is poised to launch Cox On Demand services… nearly five years after an announced partnership that most have assumed was dead. So while the various players dicker over the capabilities and implementation of a CableCARD successor, TiVo once again strikes a deal to build a custom solution. I’m not sure what’s in it for Cox, other than avoiding these last few years of TiVo’s Time Warp patent teeth. But we clearly know the value to TiVo — the company has previously indicated that retail sales and retention were higher within the Comcast footprint as Xfinity On Demand rolled out. (Granted, those regions had been bolstered by additional marketing.) Giving up “free” on demand content provided by one’s cable provider is often a sticking point before “going TiVo” – and Cox represents a sizable portion of TiVo’s addressable space as the 5th largest compatible cable operator. Trust me, a large percent of my peers with children rely on On Demand, making a TiVo a non-starter in many cases. It’s yet to be seen if the new TiVo Cox On Demand implementation retains the dated Xfinity approach or goes with a more modern HTML5 front-end. Regardless, given Cox’s continued reliance on Switched Digital Video and over aggressive copy protection, Verizon FiOS is still probably the better choice… assuming you have one.

Multichannel has confirmed Cox Nears VOD Launch on Retail TiVo Boxes

http://www.multichannel.com/news/nex...o-boxes/390884
"Cox Communications confirmed that it will soon begin to offer video-on-demand on certain TiVo retail DVR models over IP connections starting in Orange County in “early July,” followed by expansions into other markets."

"Cox spokesman Todd Smith said work is well underway for the MSO to deliver its VOD catalogue, including transactional VOD, subscription VOD, and free VOD, to digital TiVo customers who are subscribed to Cox’s video digital tier and its high-speed Internet “Essential” tier or higher. TiVo, he added, is targeting Cox VOD support on its Premiere and Roamio models (Series 4 and Series 5)."

"The VOD integration underway will have Cox support on-demand via IP (rather than via MPEG transport) using a digital rights management (DRM) from Verimatrix. Cox uses a similar approach to deliver VOD over IP to its “Contour” app for tablets."

TiVo Roamio Pro, Premiere XL4, Premiere 2TB-WD20EURS, TiVo Mini
