Parent article: The embedded long-term support initiative
Even older boxes had customization capabilities (for example you had the ability to select few "favorite" channels). Newer ones often include DVR capabilities and video rent capabilities so personal information is most definitely there.
What you probably meant is "they contain no unclassified personal data in there"... but is a good thing to have on your embedded device? We are entering era of parental computing - and set-top boxes show that people are quite willing to accept it if it means hassle-free gadgets.
