As a result, cable subscribers potentially will see new products that
can more easily transfer video content, including video-on-demand and
high-definition programming, to different devices over an IP network;
for example, from a cable set-top box to a PC or mobile video player.

The agreement concludes months of wrangling among three groups over the
issue of delivering high-value video content over IP: cable operators,
represented by CableLabs; the movie studios -- Paramount Pictures, Sony
Pictures Entertainment, Walt Disney and Warner Bros.; and the Digital
Transmission Licensing Administrator (DTLA) (www.dtcp.com), a group
formed by Hitachi, Intel, Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba.

Under the agreement, the DTLA's Digital Transmission Copy Protection
(DTCP) over IP specification is now an approved output for licensees of
CableLabs' unidirectional and bidirectional digital-cable technologies.



Wont be applicable to MythTV as I doubt they will 'authorize' a PC tuner
card but worth a read anyway.
