While I still haven’t seen specs updated to confirm how I
believe CableLabs would handle Tuning Adaptor’s with OCURs , I can confirm
that the next firmware release (in theory 1.19) will support Tuning Adaptors as
CableLabs has officially approved all ATI OCURs as Tuning Adaptor ready (hooray
for me being wrong!). In addition the
firmware should allow for less
DRM on non-flagged CableCARD recordings. Expect more next week at CEDIA.
This is one of the very few predictions
that Ben at Engadget HD made that I believe will come true.
