It took 3 or 4 different cards from Comcast before we got one that worked. Either QC on the cards is really lousy, or Comcast keeps sending out defective cards in hopes they will eventually work.

Usually when they include calibration elements, there's some form of step through instructions. I don't have the disc, so I can't check to see if there's access to it through the menu. If not, I...

Not going to get into a big political thing here, but remember, the FCC is empowered by Congress. Their power waxes and wanes over time. They used to be able to do a lot more regulation.

The problem is that they are letting the private industries set the technical requirements and act as gatekeepers for certification. CableLabs is not a dis-interested party in the market, and acts...

As I mentioned in my post above, don't make it a module, make it a parallel release of Sage with CableCard support. Then we could each buy the one that we need and move on.

People need to stop...

Good point. CC isn't widely used. I conflated the problem (encrypted broadcast) with the solution (decryption equipment).

BTW, CableCard is actually fairly widely used, since it is required in...

It will be even worse quality because the modulators they use are noisy, cause interference in the surrounding channels, and really should have at least 2 channels separating them (i.e. channel 3 and...

Nope, not me. I'm sure there are those who would prefer it that way (to make it cost less for them), but my preference is that the users who need it should pay for it. Much like PlaceShifter, or...

In case you haven't noticed, Netflix, HULU, etc. are protected by DRM. Since you pay for Netflix, you are paying for DRM content. And they can take that content away anytime they like.

That's the...

We can argue hypotheticals, preferences and distaste for DRM for the next 10 years and it won't change the facts.
