Sorry, I was copying another article I read which said this. The
actual regulation does allow AC-3. The quality limit is 48,000 khz
(they really mean samples per second I think) at 16 bits/sample.
So your existing AC-3 equipment is fine.
However, the killing of DVI is indeed in the spec -- no DVI over 720x480x
