[opendtv] Re: [Brazilian] Government threatens digital TV manufacturers

This STB of Bert's is meant to be "coupon compliant" so it by law cannot have a true HD output. Since the highest resolution output it is allowed to have is S-Video at 480i (component output at any resolution including 480p is a disqualifying feature) then decimation is an acceptable downconversion technique.

Nothing in the word "decodes" precludes decimation; decimation is just one
of the easiest techniques to discard extra bits when you down-rez. "Decodes
MP@HL" just means "you can see content that was encoded in HDTV."
