Okay, but what about discs that we create ourselves? They won't have a chip on them, so they won't answer any challenges. So how would the player distinguish between a DVD-R of somebody's holiday video, from a film that had its VOB etc file ripped and then re-burned?

Honestly Simon, I don't know anything about this system, and don't particularly care one way or the other :-) If you feel it's a hoax then that's fine with me. My only point is that it sounds plausible, and I can see reasons why the manufacturers might be interested in such a system. I know there are a lot of concerns in the software industry about slick pirated copies coming out of China and other countries.

I think its real. MACROVISION is real, and fairly ineffective. I think this new system will work for a short while, and then someone will find a workaround. It's all part of the 'arms race' attitude.

No reason to assume the article is a hoax or bogus.

Play the movie as a high quality analogue signal and record that signal.

Burn a DVD.

Simple !


It may not be digital or an identical clone, but done well on cheap equipment we probably already own any degradation may be tiny.
