no macbook, awwww
not even macbook pro 15"... apparently'
It would be nice to know what macs could even decode a blu-ray disc and play it for video. Could a mac mini even do this?
Currently no apples have hdcp enabled graphics card (hell, i'm not even sure if the lcd panels in imacs can allow it either). Unless they are going to do the same dealio and charge $1.99 to enable it like they did the wireless-n.
Oh forgot about that. Well, that's a bummer. So this would basically be an expensive way to back up data.
will this install on a mac mini, would be great for data backup. And a lot of movies are ment to be non hdcp and even the ones that are im sure there will be software tools.
I don't see why they'd need it. Only Windows Vista and stand-alone players are crippled enough to need HDCP. Even the Apple TV doesn't have it, and it's designed for high-definition TV.
Probably because no one using the new Nvidia G81 chip seeing its not out yet. Hopefully when it comes out it be an option for the Macbook Pro / iMac and actually installed on the TV
The iTV has HDMI, which means it has HDCP. However, HDCP is an issue for BD digital playback. Last I checked, all the Mac computers have analog capability, occasionally referred to as VGA. VGA is more than capable of playing excellent HD video. I would call it quite useful until BD (and HDDVD) are a little more mainstream.
HDMI is compatible with HDCP but doesn't necessarily include it. Someone asked Apple about it when the Apple TV was revealed, and they stated it didn't have HDCP.
Digital or analog, any Mac that can decode a Blu-ray disc should be able to output it to one's chosen display device. OS X is not designed with unnecessary content restriction like Vista is.
