Do you think someone will come out with a product like DVD Decryptor/DVD Shrink for use with HD-DVD's?

Jim? I can say with absolute certainty that it will never happen.

...I also don't think these computer things will ever become afordable enough for anyone other than the military, and direct satellite broadcasts into homes? Who's smoke'n what and where can I get some! ;)

In other words, it is only a matter of time.

There's no need to, AACS (which is the cryptography standard used on both HD DVD and Blu-Ray) supports "managed copy", which means you will be able to make copies of the movie directly through your player as long as you have somewhere to store them (attached media server).

Which means that copies made on one device can only be played back on that same device. If you've got multiple players, you can't share a copy between players (at least for the forseeable future anyway).

Once networked devices come into the picture, this may change. I can envision networked HD DVD/BluRay players sharing encryption wherein they are able to share the encryption between units, but I haven't read any mention of this so it is speculation at this point.

So theoritically, I could copy a disc on my PC with equipped burner and watch it back on my PC? But if I move the disc to lets say a Toshiba commercial HD DVD player it wont work?

Absolutely. Forget about what the standalone players will allow us to do. Who gives a rats ass. Toshiba already has a laptop out with an HD DVD Drive. Wait it WILL happen.

I agree completely....There is nothing a man can build that another cannot defeat!

Anyone remember VCII...(BTW: VCII+ was also beaten eventually) that was also Military technology. Kids (and professional Pirates) will find a way! That is assuming HD-DVD, BR survive. The public will have to decide that and as I have said before...Blockbuster Video will help determine a winner IMHO!

Now when someone develops Holographic TV and Media...(and If I am still around:) , THAT WILL GET MY ATTENTION!

Wow I agree 100% with the blockbuster line of thinking. I think I said that when the HD DVD subject first hit this forum.
