I get the cloud concept but I don't like the idea of paying for it for already expensive TV content and then having to abide by whatever the cable wants in terms of what I can and can not record.

It also sounds like it would strain the shit out of a network already taxed even by DOCSIS 3.0 standards. You really can't complain about bandwidth uses if you are remotely storing 160GB a month as an ISP while dealing with transfers back and forth.

I like having my DVR physically in front of me ..

Only way I would like it, is if your recorded shows were available via web browser.

Slingbox.

Well for starters...

- 160GB is pretty damn TINY, particularly for HD prog
- no 30 sec skipping (deal-breaker for me) as well as other "trick play" disablements
- poor responsiveness of remote control DVR functions; it's why I do NOT like using on-demand stuff

Relax, it is not going to use DOCSIS and you will be able to record and watch everything you can now, but from every settop box in your home. This will allow them to eventually let you watch it on a tablet. It's all about the cloud these days.
