is great news. No, really. I love the idea of Cable Cards but the
current version just doesn't do enough for me. Cable Cards 2.0 are on
track to be in production by 2006
and that’s when the fun will finally start.Everyone was excited
when Cable Cards where first developed because no one likes that big box
from cable. Be honest, I know you don't like that extra silver or
black box, but I'm sure that you like the features such as the on-screen
guide and On Demand. The current Cable Cards give you the same channels,
just not the same cool features, but the new ones will. Flat panel
owners have been waiting for this for some time now, it's too bad the
current generation Cable Card slots will not except this new equipment.
Now, if they can put a little (little in physical size, big in
storage) hard drive in the Cable Card so I can record on to it, then
take it to a buddy's house and watch my programming over there, (keep in
mind it has to be HD), then, and only
then, will I be truly happy.
