Thanks for the link, but that page is almost a year old and no word on if it’ll ever actually make it to market.

I don’t know the acronyms like you do…but it seems likely (to me) that this one-direction switchover to bi-directional is playing a big role in this stuff.

I’m on the fence with a consumer-level Dell that will work with the CableCard solution…looking around for any and all info…

It was 100 percent a leak by someone under NDA, and I believe that person if caught will have hell to pay.

What I’m saying is that just like Mikey knew Chunk would break the glass, MS knew someone would lead the TV Pack. So they were able to help current users get the TV Pack, at the same time as find their leaks.
That’s two with one stone.

The word on the street is this wasn’t an intentional leak by M$.. Someone violated their NDA and let the cat out of the bag.

I think you’re totally correct on the July deadline. Not sure I totally buy the MSFT intentional leak. Not totally.
