Looks like all the insane copy protection has bit them on the but. I have some extra money from selling property and will soon go HD (I’ll probably wait for black friday), but still have reservations about blueray (even though internal drives are reaching the 100$ mark). Digital recording sounds a lot better. Maybe they won’t mess it up with all the copy protection. I’m actually worried about being able to use completly legal content with blueray, as some of my hardware may not be compliant. Selling a lot of non compliant hardware, and forcing down scaling on it was yet another stupid copy protection idea. Who wants to replace perfectly good equipment to satisfy their need for complete control?
