It also looks like the FCC dismissed the requirement if I skimmed the document correctly.
The only conditions placed on the approval is their continued consumer education and point of sale materials/notices to make sure they know it's digital-only. It's not tied to any specific product, so the waiver is forever/indefinite now.
Did they only drop it for TiVo or for all companies?
Clever how they did that. We should have written letters in opposition of a blanket waiver to get them to reveal specific products. Then again, we already got them. And I doubt there will be any more significant units hitting the market before analog truly is dead (as far as the FCC is concerned).
My non-lawyer read of the order believes it applies to TiVo only.
I agree. I am not a lawyer either, but I didn't see a single place where they mentioned the market's products (general DVR wording). They only referenced Tivo. Although they clearly laid the groundwork for others getting waivers, with the parts that state this device connects to a TV for viewing (and all TVs have an analog tuner).
Agreed 100%. (VideoRedo user)
I know Samsung has that device waiting for a similar waiver which is why I was wondering.
As does EchoStar. I bet these companies could have skipped the paper drill - no one would have called them on it. Analog is dead as far as OTA broadcast content goes.
