Hoping to hook your Apple TV up via a CableCARD, broadcast live TV and possible record it using the device’s DVR? Well it looks like you’re out of luck as Apple’s CFO, Peter Oppenheimer, has said that the Apple TV will not be getting a CableCARD nor DVR capabilities.
But why? Well, according to Mr. Oppenheimer the device getting the two above mentioned components wouldn’t work well with Apple’s business plans. In other words, buy from the iTunes store, or die.
