    I understand what you're saying. Fortunately I don't have Comcast. I use
    Time-Warner for TV and RoadRunner for Internet. Both, though not
    perfect, seem to be as good or better than the competition, despite the
    quality having decreased a bit over the last 5 years or so.

    What I'm hoping is that TW will see this and institute its own similar
    app. However, AFAIK my current cable box doesn't have Bluetooth or
    Wi-Fi, so that may be a huge obstacle. I've sent an email to TW with the
    link. I'll post any reply I get from them.

    Okay, for all you Time-Warner users out there, I have an answer from
    them. The good news is that they got back to me right away. The bad news
    is the answer.

    My inquiry via there web interface:

    Does Time-Warner have any plans to institute an iPad remote control
    program like this one from Comcast?

    This would be REALLY useful!

    Their response:

    ....Currently there is nothing in the works for any app's being developed
    for the iPad.  It would limit the use of the application and also limits
    the number of users who would be able to take advantage of the
    application.  If a large enough demand for a comparable service exists,
    we will do everything we can to provide it to our customers...


    I'm not sure what they mean by 'it would limit the use of the
    application...', but the answer is no, they don't plan to develop one
    unless there is an overwhelming demand from customers.
