How long are you going to keep it on your DVR's hard drive, it's over 40G after all, are you going to get a 100 terabyte hard drive to store all of your HD movies?
No, Moose, I think Hollywood would want to sell you the RIGHT to watch the film, and that would need to stay with you, all this ties into some of the newer high tech security systems my flight to Vegas neighbor was telling me his one company does. FWIW the chipsets are already in many computers (all Macs and others...) waiting for initiation and use.

Yes, this is big brother watching, and I too like the hard media, but if I could pay $10 for Christmas Vacation and stream it each and every year after, that is worth it to me!

That is what I think we are heading to..... I could be wrong....
