Ok, Sorry for the confusion.
I really don't consider the comparison fair between TIVO and WMC as an "apples to apples" comparison. One is primarily just a DVR with some streaming apps added in. The other is a DVR with the ability to be an all-in-one replacement for all other STB/Blu-ray player/Gaming system/computer.
I do agree that the TIVO's have come a long way, but for me it still lacks the "all-in-one" feature set that WMC gives. I was posting in response to the AppleTV or other "media streamers" as DVR's. They are not, they have no cable card support or even a blu-ray player. Probably never will - it's beyond their price point.
Since this thread is about our cable TV provider, I feel it's worth pointing these things out - so first time readers don't get confused as to what these other media streamers can and can not do.
TIVO & WMC are:
"Still, a much, much better solution than whatever Cox can provide."
-No argument there
