^ I hear you but w/ commodity HW (and most of these STBs are using the same chipsets), they're missing an opportunity to differentiate and perhaps increase their margins w/ good software.

There is no HW-only these days, it's all about integrated solutions; Nortel used to think itself a HW company

You know, other than a knack for design and HW integration, Apple has become very successful on the strength of its software, and yes, it's clearly about shipping the newest shiny HW gizmo each quarter, but they know the importance of software. Other companies should watch and learn!
