I bought a 23" lcd tv and a samsung dvd player with DVI output from Dell a while back. The DVI connection on the tv was not HDCP compliant so there was no picture when using the DVI input. Dell support told me " too bad" even though their website sold these 2 items as a package. Samsung support however gave me the code to allow the dvd player and tv to work together through the DVI connection. I wonder if DTV will lose many customers over this issue or if it is something that will be used industry wide in the future.
It's the future, but only as other technologies hit obsolescence. They agent going to lose many if any customers over it.
