Windows 8 release in 2012 hinted at by Microsoft Netherlands (Download Squad)

Oct 24th 2010 9:20AM Not exactly news as it was already announced at the 2009 Professional Developers Conference, as well as other times. Not to mention a new version is almost always released every 3 years.

How to tweak ShowAnalyzer to 100 percent commercial detection accuracy (Engadget HD)

You can use DTB to only process those 6 channels. I'll raise your point to the developer. I had a few other suggestions for the rules as well.

CableLabs amends OCUR spec, tuner sharing and MythTV are on (Engadget HD)

Actually not really. There are plenty of channels on some providers that are encrypted but marked Copy Freely. For example FiOS encrypts everything and marks it all Copy Freely. So on FiOS, Myth would work just like Media Center. On TWC that marks everything Copy Once, then yeah, same as a clear qam tuner.

That isn't the only problem. Even if Sage did license PlayReady DRM, it would still need to get CableLabs certified, or else it wouldn't be able to initiate a secure channel which is required for Copy Once material (that's right, the DRM's content has to be encrypted again while's its transmitted).

There is no direct correlation between encrypted QAM and CCI flags. You can have Copy Freely content delivered via encrypted QAM and Copy Once content via unencrypted (although I've never seen this).

Actually no. You can pair it with as many PCs as you want, but a tuner will work on one PC at a time.

I said I didn't like vampire movies and none in that list change my opinion.

It depends if I wanted multi-room. As a DVR I really like the 922, but it only works in one room if you don't include the sling.
