Re: [iO] Plain box for cablecard?

If anyone knows of a company making cable-ready TVs these days, please let me know. They're working on something that will allow two-way communication between customer and cable company and I think manufacturers are waiting to see what the standard will be.

CableCARD-equipped TVs are no more as far as I know. As previously stated the only CableCARD devices on the market are DVR-related, with the only ones not requiring a subscription being the PC-based ones (e.g., Windows 7/Windows Media Center products like SiliconDust's HDHomeRun Prime and Ceton's InfiniTV 4).

For PC-based solutions you'd need to collocate the PC by the TV and connect via HDMI or use a Windows Media Center extender (although there are not many WMC extenders on the market, with Ceton's "Echo" being the only new product to enter the market in quite some time - not until sometime in 4Q2012, however)
