Comcast Does Digital Video Recording

Cable company offers a TiVo alternative -- but can this device compete?

Liane Cassavoy, PC World Friday, March 18, 2005

If you can't stand to leave home knowing you might miss an episode of Lost or 24, you need a digital video recorder. Gone are the days of the VCR -- today's DVRs let you schedule recordings of your favorite shows and replay them at your convenience. And you don't have to shell out big bucks to get one.

Several big-name cable companies, including Comcast, are offering DVRs to subscribers for a monthly fee. So how do these "rental" DVRs stack up to ReplayTV and TiVo? I put Comcast's DVR to the test and found that, while the price may be right, the device is certainly not perfect.
