EFF is disappointed with Digital Networks North America's decision to disable the Commercial Advance and Send Show features in new model 5500 ReplayTVs. "This is yet another example of Hollywood dictating what technologies consumers can and can't use" said EFF Attorney Gwen Hinze. "Consumers are the real losers from Digital Networks' business decision. They will now be forced to watch commercials and forgo the benefits of technological innovation to meet the concerns of the 28 Hollywood studios who have been suing ReplayTV for the last two years."
