Hi there

I own a FireDTV S2 and I'm willing to invest some time. I poked around
in the driver code previously and I might do some coding given that I
have access to the required technical information. 

As far as I know Digital Everywhere is out of business - does this mean
that the NDAs are no longer in effect and that someone could give me the
technical documentation required?
