MPAA: Don't limit our ability to close analog outputs
Everyone's favorite trade group is at it again! This time they want the ability to shut down analog connections on set top boxes for specific events. The group mentions that this will give the security needed to allow providers to show movies before the appear on DVD. It certainly doesn't take a genius to figure out that this clearly falls into the motto "Give them an inch and they will take a mile". Of course, that leaves a lot of analog folks out in the cold as well, not everyone has upgraded to the latest and greatest TV with HDCP compliant protections.
