Yesterday, I was in Chicago attending the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) convention.


At the Motorola booth, I got a peek at their new generation of cable STBs. They were displayed in a plexiglass case, so were obviously prototypes.


The higher end models were capable of decoding HD pictures from either the 64QAM or 256QAM format, the cable company transcodes the signal from OTA 8VSB to the QAM formats. The output of the signal is digital component video.


I also learned a little more about Discovery HD, which I've posted in the HD Programming forum.
