I have mixed feelings about all this, on the one hand, I would like to see progress made toward getting good quality audio infested by cinavia but I think we have to be realistic about it at the same time.
If he is bundling his cinex along with his other offerings, I understand that would allow him to lure buyers by that fact in addition to his main software offering.
About being realistic, there are too many great workarounds that don’t have to include defeating cinavia–this is no doubt about it, this is the best way to go.
Here’s my main thought and my intention isn’t to be disrespectful to him but I don’t think he has the talent level needed to truly defeat cinavia in the fashion most everyone is use to IRT getting rid of copy protection schemes.
Not that he isn’t good at what he does but this doesn’t include copy protection in the form of audio protection.
The majority of high def. video users…who go further than simply putting the original disc in a player have moved away from making their copies in the form of another disc (BD).
Therefore for the most part the community as a whole only has a low level curiosity about cinavia…not to mention that the movies that have it…for the most part…aren’t exactly blockbusters.
IMO, what is would take to break the CP is for a group of talented individuals to first get interested then as a team effort work toward the goal of breaking it.
Such a group usually consists of members of doom9 although it wouldn’t be limited to them alone.
I don’t see them interested at all in this…because of the afore-mentioned reasons.
Without true removal or rendering it ineffective, what we will be left with is a lower quality audio…by means of applying already current filters…no doubt were not designed with the intent to handle something as complex as cinavia.
So to put this in perspective, everyone must lower their expectations with the end result since it is as of now impossible to defeat this CP by the way things were done in the past.
Having said all that, I do believe the audio quality can be improved using current filters but it will never…ever be high definition audio…likely one will need to forget about even high fidelity or multi-channels…only 2 channel/ stereo should be considered.
I have continued working with filterings to see how the scheme reacts to different scenarios…roughly documenting my results.
I think I have a fairly good theory of what it is…if I am correct, most of what I have read isn’t exactly true.
It can be masked so that it doesn’t respond though it is a formidable challenge to try to keep the audio closer to the original…and without the cinavia activation message.
I have got it down to …still having trouble retaining midrange to the level I want it…so it sounds…well…too tinny…more tests and tryouts to do…
I know what it takes to beat it…just haven’t got the sound I would like yet.
