The article reports on the development of the switched digital video (SVD) adapter intended for third-party consumer electronics devices by the cable industry in the U.S. The move comes to address the industry's concern that SDV has not been working with these devices, such as digital video recorders (DVRs). Moreover, it is noted that the adapter would allow high-definition DVRs to access all SDV channels without a set-top box (STB).
