Re: When will Comcast HD box record more than 2 shows at 1 time?
said by andyross:They don't offer that because their business model says "you want to pause, rewind, etc. you need a DVR." They probably don't think your suggestion will increase revenue so it's a non-starter.
And a side questions: Given the amount of memory many boxes have, why can't non-DVR's use that as a sort of DVR-style buffer? Even if it's only enough for 5-10 minutes, it can be usable and require nothing more than some programming.
