Hello, techinstaller! Do you install this stuff for clients or for yourself? Would love to learn more if you can shoot me an email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
Techinstaller (Posted on 09/29/14, 04:19 PM)
Tested this product this week. I am a technician that installs stuff like this all the time. It took a looooong time to get a hub and a few simple devices set up but the support was a real person, fairly knowledgeable, and easy to get in…

Yes, Blu-ray is tangible content with DRM restrictions on its use.  Most people conform to the new rules, judging by the numbers.  The Adele concert on Blu-ray and Led Zeppelin’s Celebration Day are multi-million sellers,…

Thats because the content is so hi res its protected against piracy, the highest resolution digital content cant be heard without compliance to the HDCP protocol. Hi resolution means the content is uncompressed, with the full bandwidth…

And yes, you can get bit-perfect audio off of a Blu-ray disc but it takes a long time and requires using software that is not legal in the US. My larger point is that people interested in listening to high-resolution music in their…

Bob of course Blu-ray content can be enjoyed on a Blu-ray disc player; my point is that I can’t add Blu-ray content to my existing library of high-rez music to be played back by Sonos, Sooloos, Amarra, etc. the way that most people…
Bob Rapoport (Posted on 09/29/14, 11:50 AM)
@paul, you cant get the digital hi res audio off the Blu-ray without a Blu-ray player, not just any audio player. The disc must be in the player drawer, player must be set to HDMI Bitstream output, authenticated for a secure connection downstream…

No.  pay supposedly will come from revenue.  But although some products are ready, the system is still not complete.  And with the new owners, it doesn’t look like it ever will be.
Bob Rapoport (Posted on 09/29/14, 09:20 AM)
@paulcunningham - Your understanding about this is incorrect, all that’s required is to use a Blu-ray player with audio output set to HDMI Bitstream.  This avoids any degradation by the players D to A converter or down-rezzing…
paulcunningham (Posted on 09/29/14, 08:57 AM)
@Bob - the difficulty with Blu-ray recordings is getting the disc’s audio onto your audio-only player of choice. You either lose quality (e.g. Blu-ray analog line out to the typically pitiful ADC in a computer) or have to rip the disc…
