I think I finally found my big idea.
I noticed over the holidays that the various consumer electronics stores didn't even blush about charging full list for everything but remaindered merchandise. I propose to charge full list all the time.
The typical store stocks only a tiny portion of a manufacturer's line. I think I can make money by stocking the full line. Rather than diddle around a bunch of empty shelves at the mall, connect with eroy, I'll actually have the merchandise. It will cost you, but I'll have it. What a concept!
The document that contains the technical description is EAI 744 and it is to be incorporated into the B version of EIA 608.
If you get a new TV and mess around with the remote control enough, you'll discover that the extended data also contains the name of the program and the time remaining in the broadcast. What is apt to upset viewers who get into this mode is that you can also get a text box that will block the middle of the screen.
Most of the syndicated program tapes we play contain this information. I frankly haven't checked to see what they rate a talk show when it's "big tits" day.
I haven't verified this, but I think the analog PSIP information that carries the relationship between your analog and digital channel numbers goes into the XDS information.
Naturally your existing closed caption generator doesn't do any of this stuff. You'll have to spend some money.
They may have gone too far with their affiliates by making a blatant grab for their digital spectrum. There seem to be plenty of entrepreneurs with better ideas.
