sorry, I'm getting confused by pranay's line of debate. I can't understand why it's so important for him to have HDCP functional under linux if one can already decrypt and play content without having to funnel it via HDCP. Perhaps I've missed what he's getting at?

How much of a "pain in the arse" is it to play AACS content in Linux? Anyone actually tried? Have you got to 1st decrypt, re-master & then play, or is it all done on the fly with little noticeable effect? (provided you've got the grunt)

Guess I'll find out soon enough, building a myth + ubuntu box!!
