I’ve heard cable companies have occasionally been short on CableCARDs, but this is the first time that I recall reading about low DVR stock! An ABC affiliate writes:
Time Warner is all out of high-definition DVR boxes. If you pick up a regular box and put your name on the wait list for a DVR, you’ll get one as soon as Time Warner has them back in stock. The company that makes these DVR’s has been overwhelmed by requests for them, and cable companies all across the US are telling customers they’ll have to wait for the DVR’s.
I’d be interested in finding out which “company” produces these particular boxes (Scientific Atlanta?) and if TWC is just redirecting blame. Are “cable companies all across the US” really out of stock? Has anyone experienced this first hand?
