Motorola intros integrated HDTV/PVR set-top box

Motorola Broadband Communications has introduced combined HDTV/PVR functions in a single set-top box. The new Motorola DCT6000 series supports the plans of undisclosed cable operators to deliver a combination of interactive and entertainment services, such as personal video recording (PVR), high-definition television, and other processing-intensive applications.

Motorola said the DCT6000 platform builds on its previous DCT5100 and DCT5200 set-tops. The new model includes increased processing power; digital interfaces to digital television products, an integrated DOCSIS-compatible cable modem, and features such as pausing live TV and recording programs via the electronic program guide (EPG) interface.

Motorola said it plans to deploy the new set-top boxes this summer. Also on the product roadmap, Motorola said, is a dual-tuner variant and “whole-home“ PVR capabilities. The DCT6000 platform will support a variety of applications from Concurrent Computer, Gemstar-TV Guide International, Liberate, Microsoft TV, Pioneer Digital Technologies, and SeaChange International.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
