Record and playback high definition TV signals
Authored by: zgafford on Apr 28, '04 03:26:43PM

Just incase anyone wants to know what the actual law says here it is:

"...To accommodate these interfaces, effective April 1, 2004, upon consumer request, MSOs must provide functional 1394 outputs to HD STBs, either by downloading the necessary software to STBs with existing 1394 ports, or by replacing a deployed HD STB for one which includes 1394. These leased HD STBs must be controllable by a TV or other device equipped with a 1394 port for the tune function, mute function, restore volume function, power on, power off, and status inquiry.  (Under the MOU, the STB will be provided at no additional cost to the customer, but MSOs may charge, as appropriate, for delivery and installation of the new STB.)..."
