Re: How it will work...
I don't think anyone is worried about their DVR "going anywhere". It's just this "built-in" technology is worthless to a lot of us if we still have no recording ability.
I'd honestly rather have a set with dumb clear QAM + recording than Tru2way. Just keep the drive external so it keeps set costs down and makes the drive easy to replace if it fails.
I agree with most of what you are saying, but if they want to integrate a dvr they can. (I wouldn't want that... imagine the harddrive dying in your tv... what a pain to fix.)
Also note, in my house we can do with one dvr and several other tvs without the dvr, but right now I have to have a cable box in front of them (might as well be a dvr) to get all the channels. I don't think this will fix all the world's problems, but I think it will be a nice feature for some places to just have a working tv (not everyone uses a dvr, although i think they should). And look at the other posts there were clearly some people whining about their dvrs. For what reason? I don't know, but I just wanted to be sure that they understood it.
