I have been aware for some time that Comcast will not allow fast forwarding of some "On Demand" programs and we record everything on the DVR BUT I have noticed lately, that when we go to play a recorded program from the dvr, Comcast takes over and says something about a problem playing the program from the dvr and switches over to "On Demand" where they force us to watch the commercials. This is EXTREMELY annoying since that is the whole poinit of paying for the DVR!!! I am looking at alternatives to the Comcast dvr to see if there is a way around this? When we record a program on the dvr, we should be able to play it back without Comcast interference!!! Wondering if anyone has experience with Tivo or other dvr's? Can Comcast control those, too, and make them as useless as their own dvr??
