And this differs from mandating ATSC tuners in all televisions how?

If the HD encoding/decoding were an open format and public domain, I would
be all for "forcing" HD radio.  However, the encoding is proprietary and
licensed.  If Ibiquity were to be required in the receiver, why shouldn't
XM receivers be required as well?

ATSC reception is free--doesn't require a paid subscription as do Onstar, Acuralink, XM and Serius. Don't know about Ibiquity or HD radio as far as subscriptions though.

You can UNSUBSCRIBE from the OpenDTV list in two ways:

- Using the UNSUBSCRIBE command in your user configuration settings at FreeLists.org
- By sending a message to: opendtv-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word 
unsubscribe in the subject line.
