I'm looking at HDTV cards, and some folks on ebay note that their HDTV Wonder cards were manufactured before 7/1/05. Since the flag was killed, isn't this pretty much a non-issue, or does anybody know if ATI altered their cards post 7/1?
I really dislike entertainment execs.
BTW, This is what ATI says:
Information regarding Broadcast Flag legislation – According to FCC’s Broadcast Flag Order (MB Docket 02-230) adopted November 4, 2003, Digital TV receiver products (like the HDTV WONDER) built on and after July 1, 2005 are required to protect certain digital TV broadcasts. The legislation does not affect HDTV receiver products manufactured before July 1, 2005 (or sold any time after). As such, the HDTV WONDER™ will continue to function exactly in the same manner it does today past the July 1, 2005 legislation date.
I'm just wondering if new cards are susceptible to flagging in a way that old cards are not.
