We [Microsoft] are working to enable support for the CableLabs SDV Tuning Adaptor for Windows Media Center Digital Cable Tuners, ensuring that Windows Media Center users will be able to access switched content.

Currently there’s no way the Tuner Adapters that TiVo units can use would work with the existing ATI Digital Cable Tuners, so it doesn’t really make any sense that we’ll have any kind of a quick/short-term solution for SDV.
