How Will Switched Digital Video (SDV) Affect The Series 3 TiVo?
Update 07/30 @ 10:52PM: Ben Drawbaugh has posted a wonderful SDV FAQ over at TiVoCommunity.com.
In a post last week I alluded to some disturbing information that a Time Warner installer told me. According to the installer, TWC has plans to move ALL digital content in my area over to switched digital by the end of the year. I’m not sure whether or not the rep that I spoke with has his facts correct. engadgetHD recently had a post saying that only NEW channels would be implemented using SDV. In my opinion, engadgetHD’s analysis seems to make more sense.
In either case, it has me concerned that switched digital could render my Series 3 useless. Is this concern valid? Can anybody alleviate my concern or is what I’m thinking correct?
