I'm in Massachusetts with Comcast cable. No PVR capability yet, but they say very soon. All the cable boxes and modems they're using here are Motorola, so I'm assuming we'll be getting a Motorola PVR. Not sure if it will be the DCT6208. I've heard some user experiences on the SA PVR boxes, but would love to hear some user experiences on the Motorola PVR boxes.
Unfortunately, I think the cost might be prohibitive. If it's gojng to be an extra $10/month for PVR "usage fees", plus the requirement of subscribing to digital cable, I guess I'm looking at close to $70/month at the cheapest.
Unfortunately, satellite is not an option for me until I can get local channels (or at least "distant networks") through it, but they're not offering my city's locals, and I don't qualify for "distant" networks. So I guess I'm sticking with cable.
