I think it's too early on the VidOn side to draw too many conclusions. Not considering price I think the Chromebox is a better and safer solution. The hardware is more powerful and being an "actual...

I read recent episodes will includes ads and catalog titles/series won't. Since the service is live... does one still have the same access to recent episodes?

I'd suggest reading a few of the DVR threads here and perhaps in the HTPC forum. Until you see what's available it's hard to shape what features are or aren't important.

I agree it came across as a (not funny) Saturday Night Live skit. My take is some people watch so much TV that anything lame is entertaining since it's not done as often. :)
