This article has some interesting things. iPad app to get remote DVR and the ability to use it as a remote control. TWC is also working on a new cloud based guide probably for high end OCAP boxes (e.g. Samsung, Cisco, Moto DCX). It also mentions improved search features. I guess Keyword search is coming to this guide, not Navigator.
I could not find where it said that Navigator was not getting the Keyword Search option. Nor where it really said anything about Navigator. Note that I only skimmed it, and could find nothing Navigator specific about Navigator in an IE 8 search for it.
However, it did talk about the Cloud Service in the future. I don't think that will be a STB based feature, but a web or network-based feature. I have proposed something like this for years! In fact, Ben and I both advocate the use of having a back-up system for shows and box settings stored in a "cloud." When the STB craps out and need to be exchanged, settings and services would remain in the "Cloud." So you could bring them back by signing into your account like "My Services" or call up TWC, and verify your account information, and they would copy the services that you had in the cloud, back to the box.
Actually, Ben and I really want the Remote DVR Manager to store shows and box settings as if TWC My Services would become a "Cloud" for storage, rather than relying everything on the current DVR. As the capabilities of the cloud expand, the boxes phase out more and more in proportion to what the Cloud can do, and store.
And maybe in the next 5-10 years more and more data and storage settings will move to a cloud-based and mobile based technology, over time, the box, both as a stand-alone AND as a DVR gets eliminated.
