CableLabs has developed a solution that allows certain Unidirectional Digital Cable Ready Products that use CableCARDs—including TiVo HD DVRs—to access previously unavailable switched digital video without a set top. In partnership with TiVo, Motorola, S-A, BigBand and C-COR, specs were developed for an external interface that enables UDCPs (TVs, PCs) equipped with a USB connector and necessary firmware to access switched digital cable channels. Cable ops are expected to make the new adapters available for TiVo customers in 2Q, although logistics are still being worked out. Time Warner Cable said the solution will be a welcome option for certain subs, but that those subs represent a small portion of its overall customer base.
