cable card support !!! take the windows media center stuff and port it to the xbox and then you can watch cable w/o having to rent a cable box from the cable company!!
sure the providers are starting to offer content on the xbox but only a few channels they pick. With a cable card we can get all the ones we want.
a cable card will cost about $3.00 to $5.00 US a month from the local cable company. an HD DVR box they rent you is about $16 to $20 US a month and they may also charge for the remote at $3 to $7 a month.
so the cable card costs you less and you get the same content, the xbox can be setup to do what the hd dvr does and it's yours.
