Xbox inches closer being your DVR
As a once-avid user of Windows Media Center to record TV, it was pretty clear to me that the Xbox could make a great DVR. This latest move is indicative of where they are going.
Microsoft is adding recording and playback capability to live, over-the-air TV. You still have to purchase some hardware and an antenna to receive the broadcasts, but the Xbox provides the program guide and recording software.
Of course the next logical question is, “When will Xbox allow me to record cable TV shows, like a TiVo?”.
One can only speculate. They certainly could have rolled out that feature now, so there is clearly a strategy behind their moves.
Time will tell.
