|Hopefully Todd's Panasonic still talks to his DST. If the DSTs have a faulty 5C implementation, as has been suspected here, they may have been placed on the US JVC recorders' initial Certificate Revocation List, which it could have passed to the Panasonic if they completed authentication together (the Panasonic, passing authentication, should have noticed the fresher CRL and requested it). It would be better (for the experimenter's equipment), if both the TU-DST5x's and the PV-HD1000s have placed on the JVC's CRL, and it refuses to talk to either (that way it won't poison the mind of the Panasonic recorder against the Panasonic STB). Even if the Panasonic recorder absorbed a new CRL which would prevent it from making secure connections to the STB, it might still be capable of playing non-copy-protected tapes through it.|

No worries Jay.
My equipment has neither the sniffles nor any purulent discharges.
Everybody is still on speaking terms.
You seem to be quoting the ravings of a paranoia preaching lunatic uninitiated to the actual mysteries of HDTV recording alchemy.
I believe you can carry on with your experimentations without fear of acquiring any sexually transmitted infections.
Condoms will not be necessary!

In order for DTLA to go in and trash our Panny boxes wouldn't there have to be some flashable memory on the boards? If that's the case then maybe one of the Chip-Meisters on the forum can take a look and tell us if there is a problem. I'll post photos of all the chips if need be.
My chip knowledge is a little out of date, otherwise I'd do it myself.

I should imagine so. Both the Panasonic recorder and STBs would probably use the early 1394/DTCP chipset announced by Matsushita in November or December 1998. At that time, I'd think that all or most memory would be off-chip.
|But note that it's not the boards in the STBs that you're worried about--it's the boards in everything connected to them. This System Renewability thing works by telling other equipment not to give protected information to currently suspect equipment.|
