Wired magazine has an article summing up the pros and cons of CableCard technology. CableCards are essential to the TiVo Series 3 (it sports 2 CableCard slots), and a recent federal appeals court ruling requires cable companies to support them.
- No cable box needed
- Can be sent through mail
- No need for kludges like an IR blaster
- One-way system (although CC 2.0 fixes that)
I’m curious to see when Charter… er.. SuddenLink starts to support CableCards…!
