said by ISurfTooMuch:No ad skip? thats the only thing i pay cox $28 a month for for their DVR. even for free i wouldn't go for that.
And this surprises you how?
If the entertainment industry wanted to effectively fight this, they'd be far better off designing a DVR that was more friendly to them, such as having less capability to skip ads, and giving it away completely free to anyone who wanted one. That way, people could time-shift for free and avoid paying TiVo or the cablecos. Not everyone would go for it, but I suspect that many people would.
These clowns can sue all they want, but it won't stop progress. Even if they could manage to stop this or that implementation of something, they're trying to hold back the sea. Eventually, they'll lose.
