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."
