Re: CableCards are great Cable cards are great. I agree. I had a nightmare getting charter to install them (i have 2, one for each tv) and it took them about a month to finally get to my house, install them and get them working properly.
The techs that come to my house to do work gasp when they see i have cable cards. Its like a commited a sin.
They often ask questions like "why do you use this?"
"why dont you use a box?" and then go on to tell me
that they have all of 10 or 20 customers using them.
My thought is if cablecards done two way communications so that you could do ppv and on demand more people would want them.
I heard that technology was supposed to be coming but i dont know if it ever did. Certainly its not available for me.
Charter has really progressed in my area. I cant really fault Charter for anything that they are doing right now but they sure dont like el cable card. It da devil!!
