    Thats to begin with, after say a few months when 'they' feel the time is right you will unwittingly buy a BD disc with the code on it which tells your player to turn HDCP on and bingo, you suddenly find yourself unable to view any HD content over you component leads.

    IMO they should stick with plan A where everyone needs HDMI from day one.

    No, what they should do is scrap this, and all futher pointless consumer funded copy protection systems.

    With AACS you will be always able to see picture but it will be 960x540 pixels with component.

    If they completly scrapped the need for HDCP, the new HD players and services would take off a lot faster.

    Why do you advocate this silly protection that is going to do very little but lock out a huge percentage of customers who were early adopters and helped HD get to where it is so far?
