It looks like Tivo is going to get switched digital video adapters so the DVRs will work with multiplexed digital cable signals. Great for Tivo owners but no news from ATI on when or even if their CableCard solution for Windows Media Center will support switched video.

Cable operators, especially Time Warner Cable Inc. and Cox Communications Inc., are aggressively rolling out switched-digital video technology.

Switched-digital technology frees up space for more channels by sending only those each customer selects, instead of streaming all channels to all customers.
