I own a first generation TIVO and wouldn't think of watching TV without a PVR. My cable company, Cox of Fairfax (VA) made this announcement, which has me intrigued: New Service Available to Cox Customers in Upgraded Areas Beginning April 1 (Herndon, VA) - Cox Communications Northern Virginia announced today plans to launch its new Digital Video Recorder service. Beginning April 1, 2003, Cox customers living in upgraded areas across Northern Virginia will enjoy access to Cox's revolutionary new service . . . The service offers more advanced recording and playback options than a VCR, greatly expanding customers' control over their TV viewing, including the ability to: Pause and rewind live TV: Cox DVR customers can stop live action TV and pick it up later, at their convenience, without missing a scene. Easily record programs any time: With up to 50 hours of capacity on the DVR hard disk, Cox DVR customers can record a week's worth of their favorite shows without having to worry about switching tapes, or recording over another program. Watch a recorded program while simultaneously recording two live programs on different channels: With two tuners, customers can enjoy their favorite shows, even if they're on at the same time . . . Watch two programs at the same time with Picture in Picture (PIP): Cox DVR gives customers PIP functionality, without having to buy an expensive new television set. It's the ability to watch one while recording another that intrigues me. Anyone have any experience with this technology? If I understand correctly, it's gonna be built into the box.
