1. Good summary, but no mention of the fact that it is nearly impossible to get flawless 24p playback on a HTPC and use it for other video?

  2. Excellent write up! Your final point:
    “So the only result from all this protection is that owners of legitimate Blu-ray movies can’t play the full resolution HD Audio soundtrack, but pirates can copy it without any issue. The media companies are ignoring the needs of their legitimate customers, which is disappointing to say the least.”
    is very similar to the one I’ve been making for years regarding the CableCARD restrictions in HTPCs.

  3. It will be good if you please also mention the date when this write up was posted. It makes a lot easier for the reader to put things in perspective when you talk about ‘availability’ or soon to come technologies – tech changes fast .. you know 🙂

      Good point. There is a “last updated on” date at the bottom of the post, but it’s not readily apparent. I updated the content to give better detail.
