I was watching a tech show and they featured a topic on ultrviolet DRM. It the newest way to control piracy. I wondered how they would effect Mythtv usage of videos? Here are a couple links on it:

DRM is all about "secret" passwords/code and that goes totally against the open linux idea.

The point that I think is important is that this new control method uses streaming. No more dvds! So mythtv would need handle the streaming.

Streaming hdtv, yeah right, the world really has the infrastructure to replace distribution of high quality media via blu-ray disks.

You should never underestimate the bandwidth of an optical disk in the mail :)

yes if you want to get your media via such a system, linux users may be outside the gate. But there will continue to be blu-ray disks and dvds while we are all catching up to South Korea in terms of conectivity.

Great "idea" but there is away around it, and its by converting the video to analog during the live feed.

Use one of these

with one of these

Then again the industry will probably only allow the TV itself to be the streaming device which is a major bummer.
