It’s finally happening, Switched Digital Video is live – at least, a bit.
A user in New Jersey with Comcast cable service received a letter from Comcast. He followed up, got an SDV tuning adapter, and he’s using it. Many of the details still aren’t clear, but what is clear is that the TiVo supports the adapter, and the cable company supports TiVos using the adapter.
We’re watching this closely, and we’re very happy to see that this hurdle has been overcome technically.
TiVo has added a large amount of information and new screenshots to their SDV page.
Thanks to TiVoBlog for the original post!
EDIT: Regarding this specific hardware, Cisco has a product information sheet here. And this is a picture of the back of the unit. The cable from the wall passes through, and the USB connection attaches to the TiVo.
