Re: [STB] Cisco thinking of getting out of the set-top box busin

An article on the Light Reading Cable site today about all the STB vendors that have now licensed Comcast's Reference Design Kit (RDK):

Well, I thought this was strange, as Pace has already provided some of the main X1 platform boxes to Comcast, as the article says: "Comcast said Pace was instrumental in developing the RDK by helping the service provider launch its XG1 multi-tuner video gateway in support of the X1 service."

However, I guess there are a few more specs in the RDK that Pace may have to formally obtain a license for.
