Snipped from another forum...


Microsoft decides to make using the UTV simple by putting the authorization info directly on the access card. Lots of people buy the UTV boxes without needing the phone line plugged in (ie. those in Canada), then in the near future they decide to change the authorization system in the UTV's via a software upgrade.


My question - how feasible would it be for MS to modify the authorization scheme in the UTV's to say something close to Tivo (where phone line has to be plugged in)? Could this be done via a software upgrade? or is there anything in the hardware that makes the authorization system dependent on the access card?


I'm looking forward to using UTV in Canada.

Thanks.
