    Subject line says it all. But specifically i'd like to run Windows on a 24" iMac with an external blu-ray drive. HDCP is required for movies to work in the requisite program (either WinDVD or PowerDVD). NVIDIA specs say that the 8800GS (aka 8800M GTS) handles it, but are the mac cards different?

    Not in OS X; I'm not sure about Windows. :(

    Ars Technica believes that the Al iMac has supported HDCP since it's release last year.

    I still haven't found an answer elsewhere about this. Any ideas?

    Not in OS X. Windows maybe.

    That's the current definitive answer.
