Just read about D* just turning it on:


Is this "new" news or old? I have to admit I don't know much about this. Thoughts, good, bad, shouldn't care? :confused:

DirecTV enabled the HDCP on channel 201 so people with HDCP equipped monitors can check to see if it works. DirecTV has NOT enabled HDCP on any ither channel, but, of course, can enable it if the program provider requests that. On the negative side, people with non-HDCP DVI monitors get "snow" instead of a picture.
