Multimedia, AV Sigh. So, we have the music industry whose DRM schemes and other anti-piracy measures have thoroughly failed, and are only hindering consumers who stick to the letter of the law. Now we have Hollywood who's going to do it all over again: the AACS LA is busy killing off component video - even for existing, currently-owned equipment.

Just use DVD

I am happy enough with the quality of DVDs. I just recently bought a new DVD player when I could have gotten a blue-ray. The cheapest blue-ray players cost around $150 while a DVD machine can be as low as $30. Pay all that extra money for what? More DRM.

I have no desire to feed the blue-ray parasites, and I hope that technology fails.

Ditto. I'm getting my HD content from my satellite TV provider, thank you very much. I've not bought a Blue Ray player nor do I plan to buy one and, sure as hell, I don't plan to buy my DVD movie collection again in HD format! As many people share this last point with me, it's going to be hurting content providers, which would just love having people buying their stuff over and over again.

As I wrote: not gonna happen, I have better uses for my money.
