Submission + - Microsoft: Easy CableCard, Copy Freely Fixed, More

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft announced today that it would be easy to add digital cable tuners (DCT) to Win 7 machines — so users and OEMs don't need to jump through hoops to add CableCards to their Windows Media Center PCs. Also: Microsoft is supporting Switched Digital Video through a Reverse Digital Channel, so cable channels won't drop off the map. And, Microsoft fixes the "copy freely" bug so that users can stream their digital video to other PCs on the network, as well as portable devices.
