Please read the definition of bogus above. I really don't think the Verizon box is "bogus". And I don't think their offer to rent you a box is "peddling". It does what it is supposed to do and it actually does it fairly well. I actually like it very much and have never filled it up. In many ways I like it's functionality better than the Tivo, which I also have.
