HDTV Leaps 'Last Hurdle' In Transition
from the go-go-FCC dept
The FCC is really on a roll these days. First they agree to reform the spectrum allocation process and then they set some standards for HDTV that will allow digital TVs to embed technology to receive HDTV signal without a special converter box. However, there is a very scary sentence at the very bottom that comes with no details saying that to get this deal cable companies “compromised on proposals to limit home recording of digital programs.” There’s no clue what that compromise was and if it means we’re losing some consumer rights or not. If anyone has some more details, feel free to post them.
