    This thought crossed my mind the other day and didn't know what folks thought...

    Do you think Motorola (or other manufacturers), DirecTV as well, would build in slingbox-type functionality into their cable/dish boxes in conjunction with the cable/satellite providers to take revenue away from Slingbox, similar to how they have by providing built in Tivo-like functionality?

    I'm guessing this would be problematic for contractual reasons. I'm not sure their agreements with the content providers would support this model. With slingbox, the customer is doing it on their own. If DirecTV did it, would HBO et al be happy?
