The idea of cable cos. offering a "Residential Gateway" and having a set-top-box as "the primary point of entry into the digital home" concerns me greatly! For this same reason I install a router between the ISP and my LAN. I want a demarcation point under my control...untangle.com offers an open source firewall which I believe is the best perimeter solution for the digital home.

“There's been a resurgence in the concept of the residential gateway, a complex device capable of delivering multiple services to the home, including video, data, voice and wireless. RGs can deliver many of the service packages consumers are asking for, and they also open a path for service providers to extend their reach further into their subscribers' homes with future services.”
