Mindlessly implemented SDV? I imagine they implemented SDV with being able to have more HD channels in mind.

My TiVo Elite has been working just fine with SDV and the Cisco tuning adapter.

Then you must be in one of the few markets that knows that they're doing! Good for you! Just google "tivo SDV trouble".

They implemented SDV to force more cable box rentals and break what used to be called "Cable-ready TVs".

Cable should not have been allowed to walk away from that standard, but since we've got the best regulators CableLabs can buy we're back in the early 1980's when it comes to consumer protections and consumer choice.

Nope. They did it to gain capacity. They don't care if you use TiVo, you still have to pay them every month, and so few people do that it doesn't hurt their box rental cash cow. Also, TiVo and MCE users probably subscribe to more stuff on average anyways.
