The article reflects on the importance of having digital television (DTV) standards. Due to reports from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that most DTV receivers do not meet performance objectives, the author explains this necessity. He states that these receivers are susceptible to IF interference, which are similar to analog tuners. He further suggests that the FCC should impose interference rejection requirements on these receivers.
