Needs and Uses: With this revision, the Commission is consolidating information collection OMB Control Number 3060-1032 (Commercial Availability of Navigation Devices and Compatibility between Cable Systems and Consumer Electronic Equipment, CS Docket 97-80 and PP Docket No. 00-67) into OMB Control Number 3060-0849 (Commercial Availability of Navigation Devices). On March 17, 2005 the FCC released a Second Report and Order, In the Matter of Implementation of Section 304 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, Commercial Availability of Navigation Devices, CS Docket No. 97-80, FCC 05-76. In this Second Report and Order, the Commission extends by twelve months the existing 2006 deadline in Section 76.1204(a)(1) prohibiting the deployment of integrated navigation devices by multichannel video programming distributors in order to promote the retail sale of non-integrated navigation devices. This extension is intended to afford cable operators additional time to investigate and develop a downloadable security solution that will allow common reliance by cable operators and consumer electronics manufacturers on an identical security function without the additional costs of physical separation inherent in the point-of-deployment module, or CableCARD, solution.
