    ONTARIO,...
    Well I was doing some research on cable cards and found an interesting tidbit. Did you know the m-cards are two way capable? The limitations on one way is the cable industry doing? Did you know that the cable industry insisted on the one way communication for the spec?

    So it will be really interesting to see how Tivo will implement VOD with the cable companies.

    Any one else find any intersting cablecard info?

    Yes, the cable co's use them in their own set top boxes.
