This article on the Light Reading Cable site this morning seems to cast some doubt [big surprise! ] on the NY Post's story:

Cisco: 'We Love Set-Top Boxes'
Light Reading Cable - February 21, 2012
»www.lightreading.com/document.as···r_cable&

Quote from John Earnhardt, Director of Corporate Communications at Cisco: "Every few months there seems to be a rumor or speculative comment about our commitment to our set top box business. Let me be as clear as I can: we love set top boxes."
