Comcast and Panasonic have already expressed their adoration for each other, and now they're proving that the relationship is more than just a fling here at CES. While details are somewhat scant at the moment, the two are working together to integrate HDMI-CEC into cable set-top-boxes. In theory, the partnership will allow tru2way STBs to sync up nicely with non-tru2way-capable HDTVs, giving a single remote control over both devices (or more, if more components are hooked up). Per usual, there's no telling when this love-fest will lead to anything substantial, but at least we know things are headed in the right direction.
