    There is enough wrong with Blu-ray without you spreading disinformation.

    There is no Blu-ray format switch on the horizon, and all licensed software players can be upgraded with new keys. Future discs will continue to work, especially if you're talking self-burnt discs.

    New Blu-ray video discs with MKBv12 and BD+ protection can't be ripped or played on Linux yet, but this will come soon.

    If you want a Blu-ray recorder, go for it. Some day everyone will have one, and if you need the extra capacity now, do it!
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    I'd rather wait for the format to become standard and prices stabilize. So I guess a two-three years wait. And a friend of mine got a shiny new player for INR 75000 ($1500) and a few movies. Now the latest movies he bought on BD won't play, and the upgrade keys don't seem to work! It seems something is wrong with every format endorsed by SONY!
