    ...AACS as the copy protection system! Same as HD DVD although there will be an extra "BD+" element:

    Which is good because it will avoid PC users having to purchase hardware compatible with both AACS and an alternative system. However BD+ sounds very much like it might require an active internet connection (as has already been implied by Sony)...

    Still curious if people with media servers can get (encrypted) HD content on their server so they can have multi room HD set-ups. Especially interesting since electronic companies like Sony and Philips are putting out more networked equipment and MS and Sony's next-gen. consoles have some form of mediacenter extender function.

    Maybe Windows Vista allows for some form of HD streaming of HDD?

    I don't see why this should be a problem - as long as all the equipment is AACS compliant. I can't imagine they will allow you to dub off the disc onto a server though given the importance attached to the disc ID.
