This is just one more smoke screen to make us think they’re giving us what we want. AnyDVD rocks.

I actually have to agree with you Duke. I am a BD fan as well but this is a smoke screen.

Thanks, Doc. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this feature was built into the HD DVD spec from day one. Who are they trying to impress?

Well sort of correct HD-DVD wasn’t near a pain to make a backup if I remember right. I am sure if this passes you’ll be getting movie only minus the extra audio that may be wanted and such to I bet.

One other thing the writer forgot to mention. This will be required for all discs EXCEPT Fox movies. This is why Fox didn’t jump on HD DVD, because they wanted an extra layer of protection (BD+) so NO ONE can make a copy of any of their movies.

Of course, since BD is the only player in town now, I guess they can tell Fox to suck it then…

My daughter loves the sheep eating popcorn :wink:

Fascist control freaks.

I sure as hell will backup whatever I like as many times as I want.

Right on, brother.
