We've been coming to CES for years looking at demos of technologies that will let us watch HDTV without a set-top box, and yet here we are years later with little choice but to find a place to put that box. The big failures have been CableCARD and then tru2way, both of which have had little impact

Ever since we first heard of the RVU Alliance we've been excited about the technology and about the supporting members.
