"Our search for highly interoperable software that provides multi-device, multi-vendor interoperability based on open standards led us to VividLogic" said Tom Taylor, Vice President of Engineering, EchoStar. "By working with VividLogic, we were able to quickly integrate a mature software stack with a proven track record and open APIs into our STB platform. EchoStar would like to provide HDTV content to as many television sets as possible, which is why we plan to support both 1394 and DVI, two primary developing standards in the industry." Mark, whatever happened to this sentiment? Has it changed. If so, don't you think that E* should state it as publically as the statement above?
