I did read that the arris unit is indeed a dcx3600 but rejigged for the purpose . i don't agree that no usa provider allows esata drives as previous to the Xfinity comcast allowed hard drives on their pvr units at least in some markets (will check for other providers..Verizon Fios also allows external drives) .I hope that shaw keeps to their practice of allowing external drives .
Yes , tv watching is certainly changing but cable providers will be around for a long time yet .I hope Shaw can pull off something decent with this approach that benefits their customers and themselves as a profit driven corporation .They were ahead with the gateway system but unfortunately floundered when it came to building on that .
Hey gamerguy , the slip knot is the the reverse of the noose knot so maybe you can slip slide and we'll all hang together (out that is and not on the scaffold).
