I've been clicking on that darn .pdf every day for like two weeks now looking for that. Then I forget today with all the commotion.

Good to see it.

Why could they self-verify this new device the first time thru?

You only have to submit your first product to CableLabs for verification. After that ... you're free to run the tests yourself (self-verify). Only reason Tivo had to go back for 'verification' for the S3 was for the M-UDCP verification.

Once a company has (successfully) completed the CableLabs verification process for one UDCP model ... they may self-verify any or all future UDCP models. Run the tests ... sign the letter ... send to CableLabs ... get your keys ... done and done.

The M-UDCP verification process is a superset of the UDCP verification process so ... Once a company has (successfully) completed the CableLabs verification process for one M-UDCP model ... they may self-verify any or all future M-UDCP (and UDCP) models. Run the tests ... sign the letter ... etc.

Tivo is free to self-verify any future UDCP or M-UDCP models.

Can someone give a brief post about what this means exactly?
It means that Tivo ran these tests:
http://www.cablelabs.com/udcp/downloads/UNI-DIR-PICS-I03.pdf
http://www.cablelabs.com/udcp/downloads/UNI-DIR-ATP-I05-040629.pdf

And probably these:
http://www.cablelabs.com/udcp/downloads/M-Host_UNI-DIR-PICS-I03-070510.pdf
http://www.cablelabs.com/udcp/downloads/TP-ATP-M-UDCP-I03-070510.pdf

And signed and sent CableLabs a letter similar to what's found in Appendix B of the following:

So its likely that the one announcement covers both for TiVo HD?

How might TiVo's passage affect the verification of products that might embed the TiVo HD design, ie. a TV?
