Re: DCX3400 box for sale on craigslist
said by Joe12345678:What does the FCC say about the software on the box or the software needed to operate on the cable system?
Now that maybe a other test case rent a cable box don't return it pay the fee and then say I own the box and it has a cable card slot so under FCC LAW YOU MUST TRUN IT ON / GIVE ME A WORKING CABLE CARD.
Wonder how billing for licensing of iGuide, VOD client software, and other client software running on the box works if a customer is just paying for CableCARD rental... It isn't free and the cable company certainly gets billed for it, I'm sure on a "per client" basis. So just because it may automatically get pushed out (against some customers wishes) to all boxes, doesn't mean it's automatically legal for non-company owned boxes to run it.
A box with no software or guide data is useless.
If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.
