Initial price points for Chinese DMB-TH receivers.

$30 SD
$40 to $50 HD

Automatically comes with Dibcom diversity level of reception mobile
though diversity can be used with DMB-TH for even more robust

Power for Chinese HD receiver on.

200 mW demodulator
150 mW silicon tuner
500 mW MPEG2 decoder
Total 850 mW
Plus I suppose an LED drain. Anything else?

Compare to 8 Watts being not enough for 8-VSB receivers while turned
on according to CEA.
From a footnote in Bendov's paper.

"For example, as NTIA is aware, the California Energy Commission has
promulgated a
regulation setting a mandatory standard for the energy consumption of
converter boxes, defined as "a commercially-available electronic
product for which the sole purpose is the conversion of digital video
terrestrial broadcast signals to analog NTSC video signals for use by
a TV or VCR." The regulation limits converter boxes to eight watts in
active mode and one watt in standby mode. Eight other states have
decided not to regulate converter boxes, while one state, New York, is
considering converter box regulations."

So how much does the typical 8-VSB receiver draw today while on?
