Hollywood movie studios can clearly see the advantages of delivering feature films directly to your home theater in the not so distant future. They are even OK with you making a digital connection between your satellite or cable system and your video source but understandably, they want to protect the integrity of their property (movies, concerts etc…) with sophisticated encryption. Who could blame them? Movie piracy, especially overseas, is an epidemic that costs the studios dearly.
