Re: Cablecard still needed for tru2way

Do they need to have the right card?

Will the cards need to be reset before install?

Are they one way dumb mode and they need a hit before they request anything.

Will they be forced updates and forced tv firmware updates?

Will you need to have the cable guy do a firmware update on your tv before install as the tv may have older base software and the cable system has moved to a newer build.

How fast will they have to fix security bugs.

# No tuner access when TV is off
Will that be a issue?

A box that is not part of tv is a better IDEA for DVR's and so you don't have ship your tv out when the cable co software f* it up.



1. There is one type of card.
2. The cards will be ready to go on first install.
3. All cards are ready for 2way...the 2way cards are referred to as M-Cards (multi-stream).
4. TVs will do a download for their initial install.
5. same as ? 4
