Sorry if this is an old topic.


But I heard that no new HD DirecTV boxes were allowed to be made this year unless they had the alotment for copy-protected digital outputs. (that doesn't mean HD component output would be non-existant just that digital outputs would have to be there as well)


Does anyone have a box that was made after 12/31/01?

Some manufacturers have continued production into early 2002 (I have a Panasonic STB manufacturered in Jan. 2002). However Directv is requiring all HD-STBs sold in the latter half of this year to include a DVI output and most manufacturers have probably already ceased production of their previous generation units in order to clear out that inventory and to set up for production of the new units.
