    Considering the fact that more and more manufacturers are integrating atsc tuners into their hdtv's and the growing popularity of firewire am i correct in assuming that future hdtv's will probably have a firewire-in and a firewire-out? or does the daisy-chain end at the tv?

    and is it compatible with computers? in other words can content be transfered and decryption take place in software? i wouldn't even need to decrypt it if i'm going to stream it right back to the tv for playback anyway. just need to transfer the content. i understand there is some authentication that goes on between 2 firewire devices that use 5c. can this be achieved in software?
