In reading the HDTV Tivo manual that was kindly posted on another thread, I see on Page 79 that all HDCP processing is left for the television to perform. I take it that this means that you can still save programs using HDCP to the hard disk and watch them later, is that correct? I am thinking about upgrading to HDTV, but I want to be sure I don't end up wasting a lot of money, and HDCP I fear is going to make a lot of people *very* sorry they ever even heard of HDTV. If I understand correctly, you can shell out thousands for the TV, and another thousand for the HD TIVO, and still not be able to watch HD programming if its HDCP-encoded. And it doesn't appear that the television manufacturers are going to make this easy either. I just came from Sony's website and I can't determine whether or not their models even support HDCP. Personally, I find this to be really ridiculous. Like every other copy-protection scheme they've come up with, the only people who seem to be adversely affected are those who were willing to pay for content all along. Pirates will always find a way around this stuff (witness how the Apple iTunes Music Store was recently "cracked".) You can't keep people from accessing encrypted content if you simultaneously give them access to the key to that content. It's like a law of nature. I wish people would hurry up and learn this already.
