I don't know.  The upstream content providers are often blamed for CCI
settings, but this doesn't make much sense to me since the variability
we see is not with channel, but with cable operator.  Why would the
same channel have different CCI on Time Warner vs. Verizon vs. Comcast
if it was the content providers mandating these flags and not the
cable operators?

It's possible things could go the other way.  As cable card devices
become more wide spread, customers may put pressure on the cable
companies to open up a bit more.  Well, one can hope at least.
