    SO I've got myself a Component board for my PW6, so I'm all sorted for the PS3 and I guess SKy HD at the moment, but sooner or later the money grabbing mega corps are going to start turning on encryption.

    So am I stuffed as far as the PW6 goes, or whats the chances of getting a HDMI feed from say a Blu-ray player, feeding it through a magic box and outputting Component?

    A few companies do boxes the other way so I'm guessing its technically feasible. But presumably getting round encryption is a bit legally dodgy, even though I just want to use it for watching telly.

    Any one any ideas ?
