Submission + - No HD in US voucher Set-Top Boxes

pcjjman writes: "On Tuesday the NTIA (National Telecommunications & Information Administration) released the requirements and recommendations for ATSC digital set-top boxes that wish to be valid for the $40 vouchers every US household will receive early next year. Guess what? None of the valid boxes will actually display HD signals. S-video's the best video output you'll find, and even that's optional. For more info read my post about it, or look at the actual guidelines themselves, straight from the NTIA."

The wages of sin are high but you get your money's worth.
