Re: DRM and Cablecard rental You are joking right? A Windows based DVR is a night and day improvement over the crappy cable company DVR. Pair it up with a WHS or a NAS box and you have limitless storage for your shows, music, DVDs, etc etc etc. You have access to Hulu, Boxee, Netflix and all of the great content found on the Internets. Plus it is a one time outlay instead of getting hit up every month by the junkie that is your local cable company.
When a cable company box can do half of what of my media center machine can do with as pleasant an interface I may switch. Until then I am happy to ride clear QAM goodness until 2010 when I stick a cable card in it.
