    Microsoft announced Monday the most updated version of its TV software for
    cable operators, Microsoft TV Foundation Edition 1.7, with features to
    support advanced digital recording and high-definition television. Released
    last year in its first incarnation, the software includes Microsoft's
    interactive programming guide--or channel guide--with tools to support video
    on demand, interactive advertising and digital video recording (DVR).
    Microsoft TV spokesman Ed Gracyck said the most pre-eminent feature in
    edition 1.7 is support for dual-tuner DVRs that let consumers record two TV
    shows at the same time, as opposed to one. Because of this advance, it can
    support Motorola's new DCT 6412 set-top box, Gracyck said.

    Microsoft TV also sells software for Internet Protocol TV, geared to
    telecommunications providers, but has yet to update it. The unveiling was
    timed with a national cable convention in New Orleans.
