Cox grabbed some early SDV headlines by promising
to supply its Phoenix-area TiVo customers with free tuning adapters
, but it only recently made good on the deal in our central Phoenix location. Since the initial announcement, other cable markets -- both Cox
and other providers
-- have already delivered tuning adapters to users. Based on our poll
, it seems the Tuning Adapter rollout is still in the early stages even though we feel like we've been waiting for a long time. Better late than never, though -- last week we got a letter indicating that our Tuning Adapter was ready for pickup at the local Cox office, thankfully still gratis. For our troubles, we got a Cisco (Scientific Atlanta) STA1520 that the Cox representative made abundantly clear was free only as long as we stayed a customer. Follow us past the fold to see how the rest of our Tuning Adapter experience shaped up.
