It would be so many years before that happens that these RTVs will be a dusty memory in peoples' closets.
Wouldn't DNNA disable the mod to avoid the law suit?

Also, DNNA's servers enable IVS, so DNNA could be as liable as Napster was.

Talking completely out my rear end - I think it's only a matter of time before IVS is turned off on the server. With 50XX's no longer being sold it's just a matter of time (probobly the length of the last 50XX sold's warranty period) before the units are no longer supported by DNNA - in which case they would have no reason to have IVS turned on any longer because none of the "currently supported" units would be capable of using it.

CA on the other hand is a feature still used in the current models as show/nav. The old "obsolete" models (50XX) have automatic show/nav which they could do away with (the automatic part) but I doubt they will get rid of show/nav completely. At least not as long as they continue to support the 55XXs.

There is a reason DNNA is calling back the remaining stock (scarce as it is) of 50XXs. Perhaps it's to make way for a new 60XX model. Or perhaps it's the beginning of the end (see chicken little). Either way it wasn't for arbitrary reasons - it means something.

Not quite true. My GE VCR from 1998 has CA. And that's the only reason I bought a GE VCR. I've heard other VCR manufacturers had it as well, but off the top of my head I can't remember them.

Well, there is of course the matter of those 50XX owners who didn't buy lifetime activation and are still paying a monthly service fee. Depending on how many are out there, that could be a significant incentive for DNNA to keep supporting the units.

I still have a Toshiba with Movie Advance.

A ham doesn't taste like pork chops, but that doesn't mean it's rhinoceros.

So.

Now that this whole CA/IVS debacle is pretty much over, whats next to solve?

World peace ? Cure for Cancer? Unlimited cheap and clean energy source? Immortality?

Anyone up for one of those seeing as how we made minced meat of the CA/IVS issue..

I'm closing this thread now simply because it's run its course.

Remember, it's just television...
