Will there even be a 2" Quad machine even working 40 years from now? I certainly won't be around to find out.

You forget that the commercials that air in the states are not necessarily aired anywhere else in the world. There are zero commercials in the world feed.

No, it will not. It is a proprietary Cisco hardware setup.

I still use both of my dishes (10' and a 12'). I'd have to double-check, but I think that I still have the Umatic tapes of the sat feeds. I used dbx on the audio tracks to reduce tape hiss.

Tape delay? No one uses tape anymore. Everyone uses hard drive servers, as a minimum. ABC, NBC and Fox have separate Mountain feeds, so the affiliates do not have to do anything (except in AZ during...

But, PBS will be airing the HBO episodes. They will do so later. I forget how long after initial HBO airing they will get to air them.

I was talking with my friend tonight. The DVR is sold as 150 hours, not the size of the HDD. Since IPTV doesn't have "tuners," it is listed differently as to what it can do. In this case, you can...

Yes, I have C-band. How do you think the affiliates get the B-cast flag... via the network affiliate feed? The CBS O&O station send the flag thru, but I have no idea what the affiliates do.

Yes and no. Keep in mind I do not run Win7, or later, so I can't verify that those OSs directly don't keep third party software from ignoring the flag. But, AIUI, it isn't the OS, but the M$ programs...

Correct me if I am wrong, but the broadcast flag never became law, or an FCC rule. Therefore, recording devices do not have to honor it.

Yes, it would seem a little strange, but companies do tend not to discuss upcoming technologies. The 500GB DVR size is indeed small. No idea why that is the case.
