“We haven’t committed to any plans [for integration] to [the Mac] because of the cost,”
“unless we find a way to record it under the current platform, and I don’t think that will happen in the next few years.”
That might as well be never in internet time. It’s not the technology that’s the problem (or the cost). It’s the rights management that’s fouling the works.
I can download to my Mac shows recorded on my TiVo. I just can’t watch them. TiVo is effectively saying I’ll never be able to watch them on my Mac.
