[QUOTE=CDan;2655903]Not necessarily, there are ways around it. It all depends on the player in use. Its FAR too early in the game to make blanket assumptions. Once more players show up that are Cinavia enabled, there will be some reliable data. At present it is possible to rip and avoid issues with Cinavia infected content on some players. Or, just keep a pre-2012 player around that has no Cinavia decoding.
Cinavia is not the apocalypse, it’s just another protection to be worked around.[/QUOTE]
I’m lucky enough to have a player that isn’t capable of supporting Cinavia and will therefore remain immune but that’s not a future proof solution as I’ll eventually want to upgrade or probably even sooner buy another player for another room in the house.
I’d rather not be left in the future with a pile of expensive backups that won’t play on a newer player, so even though I’m not currently affected, removing Cinavia seems like a pretty good idea to me.
