This installment wraps up the observations from my CEDIA trip.  Since we recorded this, Julie over at CEPro wrote two articles covering some of our findings when working with the new ATI Digital Cable Tuner (DCT) firmware and the way Verizon’s FiOS configures the Copy Control Information (CCI) bits (refer back to Installment 008 covering the DCT architecture at for a definition of CCI).  Her articles, available at and, provide a pretty good summary of some of the Digital Rights Management (DRM) changes with the 1.19 release.  My understanding is that we will see “the official” release bundled as part of the standard Windows Update process sometime in October.  It also is supposed to be available for download from the AMD site at that time.  It sounds like a great opportunity to get back in front of your CableCARD-based clients to let them know about the changes and some of the new flexibility they provide.  Naturally, we also discuss other features (specific to Windows 7) like support for SDV.
