I was thrilled to read this. I will hold on on picking up that new Manchester Morgue release now (in hopes...).

Even though this kinda puts on hold all of the BU titles I planned on buying, I'm extremely excited about this news.

November?! Seems like a missed opportunity there. Give us some hi-def for Halloween!

Yes! I second that notion. Let's just hope the long wait will be worth it.

* examine the host environment, to see if the player has been tampered with. Every licensed playback device manufacturer must provide the BD+ licensing authority with memory footprints that identify their devices.
* verify that the player's keys have not been changed.
* execute native code, possibly to patch an otherwise insecure system.
* transform the audio and video output. Parts of the content will not be viewable without letting the BD+-program unscramble it.

If a playback device manufacturer finds that its devices have been hacked, it can potentially release BD+-code that detects and circumvents the vulnerability.


I don't like this shit.
Well, that's put a damper on my enthusiasm for the format, too...


PDW, BTW, hi all.

Welcome to the forums, buddy.

As for this technology - I'm sure there will be a way that this can be circumvented in time. Just look how quick it took everyone to break the code for data encryption on the discs. I'm still surprised though, that nobody has a fix for taking screenshots on your Blu-ray ROM drive without first copying the contents of the disc to your hard drive first.

BD+ already has been cracked, last I heard it hadn't been patched yet. But since the end of the format war I've been out of the loop.

I'm leery of Blue Underground's entrance into HD, as I suspect they're going to crank the DNR.

Rhett: Thanks for the welcome. Yeah, I'm sure there'll be someone who hacks this. Eh, it also doesn't help that I don't have a hi-def tv...

IIRC Whiggles found a way...Not entirely sure how.
