re: Scoop! Cable ONE Makes HD-DTA Picks


One thing i forgot to mention in here is that the FCC has already awarded a bunch of three-year waivers to standard-def SD models from Evolution, Moto, Cisco, Thomson (Technicolor), Huawei, Nagra and Coship, and maybe some others I can't recall off the top of me skull.


Evolution and Nagra have applied for separate HD-DTA device waivers, but the FCC hasn't acted on those requests... and probably won't any time soon now that the new  CableCARD-related proposal is in motion. If that proposal becomes a hard and fast rule, box makers and MSOs won't have to go through the old waiver process because there will be a blanket exemption.  But  that's not a slam dunk; there's a big battle to be fought before any of that is decided.
