That's good news.

There are three manufacturers of all-standards DTT tuners that I know

Zarlink, now Intel

In all cases, their all-standards tuners are not being claimed to be
A/74 compliant. But the ATSC-only tuners, at least in Microtune's case
(I didn't check the others) are.

I don't know what to make of this. Could be that DVB-T folks don't want
to see that their tuner meets an ATSC spec. At least, that's the
optimistic interpretation.
