While tru2way is gaining increasing support from the consumer electronics industry, a post over at IP Democracy indicates things aren’t as rosy on the implementation side.

However:
Panasonic failed the tests, with observers reporting “dozens and dozens” of bugs, so many that they doubt a Panasonic Tru2Way TV set will be available by Christmas, much less September.
