I looked at the box Time-Warner offers in my area. It's literally a digital VCR - without commercial skip. No enhanced media (photos, mp3, etc) - pretty much no import or export to other PCs in my house. Cost was competitive ($10-15 or so), so I might sign up for a 6months to a year while waiting for the Linux alternative to mature, or to make sure TiVo won't implode.
