re: Comcast Sizes Up All-IP Set-Top


Maybe some others disagree with this, but I don't think&nbsp;we'll ever see STBs go away completely anytime soon. But I do see the overall reliance on them getting reduced as those functions continue to get embedded in tablets and connected TVs. I think the last time&nbsp;it came up was&nbsp;when&nbsp;the latest Cisco-is-trying-to-sell-its-STB unit rumor floated about, but i think the motivation for that was stemming not just from less reliance on the boxes but because Samsung was hammering everyone on&nbsp;costs.

&gt; Now, wait a minute. OK, I'll admit I don't much about what the MSOs are up to when it comes to IPTV, but did I read somewhere (LR?) that those infernal STBs would soon become so yesterday?


Ha!! Good one -- 1000 points to Flook.

Not sure if this client box will pull the cloud UI off the network directly.&nbsp; Was told that it may obtain that data&nbsp;&nbsp;off&nbsp; of the primary gateway in the home via the home network... sounds like this remote UI concept has some things in common with the RVU technology companies like DirecTV and Verizon are endorsing but I believe the way Comcast will do it is a bit different from a technical point of view. I'll have to dig into that one a bit more.JB.
