[Discuss] Verizon FIOS TV and HDHR digital tuner

Are you saying Verizon actually supplied you with the Silicon Dust
HDHomerun digital tuner?

I presume that would be the HDHR version with a slot for a CableCard
descrambler. (Or do you just mean that Verizon supplied the CableCard,
which you plugged into an HDHR that you purchased.)

I'd be rather surprised to hear of a major cable TV provider offering
that level of support to those running their own PC-based DVRs. They've
typically gone out of their way to prevent DVRs from working, and seem
to begrudgingly supply CableCard descramblers.

What does Verizion charge for the HDHR? (If they are suppling it, I'm
assuming there is a rental fee.)
