Advertisements well lets see if DT_TC clarified me correctly or not the Scard is a single stream of decrypted signal the Mcard is a multistreams of decrypted signal the 1.0 standard was all about the card and how it would decrypt a stream, no bidirectional talk at all and the number of streams were not necessarily limited to 1 by the CC 1 standard. now CC 2 standard is about the parts in the HOST that will allow bidirectional communication for VOD or whatever. It does not change the card itself or if it does it is very little. The cable labs people think the CC2 standard they have is just fine and they all agree on it. The consumer electronics group though that needs to ratify it is crying foul at the things the CC2 standard says a host has to do. So a standard exists but the two groups are at odds with no compromise in sight at the moment. Do I finally get this DT-DC ?
