    Indeed. The situation in the US is getting worse. The FCC (Federal Communications Commission just granted the MPAA (Motion Picture Assoc of America) permission to damage our television sets now. The FCC has just granted (Friday) a request by the MPAA to actually block the hardware ports or video outputs of various consumer devices. It's called selectable output control. The assertion that this would result in the disabling of millions of home theater setups did not dissuade the FCC from their ultimate decision. Here again, the special interests of big media companies was heard and catered to over the protests and interests of the consumer.

    A reform group, Public Knowledge, states that the FCC order "will will allow the big firms for the first time to take control of a consumer's TV set or set-top box, blocking viewing of a TV program or motion picture."

    Public Knowledge also added "At no point in this proceeding did any of the content companies make the case that any ‘piracy' was occurring because material was sneaking out of the back of a TV set onto the Internet."

    The FCC disagrees with the Public Knowledge assertions and claims.

    Wow, and you notice how they have the whole country brainwashed? I was always too busy working before to notice I guess. All I keep hearing about is how ppl are wanting drug tests for welfare recipients, While for years we have been paying for drug use in the entertainment industry. All the actors, athletes, and musicians (whom by many are considered role models) no has a problem with the fact that they have lives most of us dream of and end up tossing it away with excessive drug use. No, let's get mad at ppl who are down in the slums and might choose to self medicate, since they can only get medical coverage for their kids and not themselves.

    It's all one big twisted way of thinking right now and who knows where it will all end up. As long as wall street and the entertainment industry keeps their money, it's all good.

    Yea, the funny thing is, All my life all i ever heard was how it was the greatest place to be. I am willing to bet anyone here could feel that way about the nation they live in without being brainwashed into thinking it. We got the whole country brainwashed, so I guess it is time for them to do it to everyone else now.

    This has already begun with Comcast in America. About 6 months ago they switch off the analog 1-100 cable channels that was basically free cable to some people or a low $14 monthly. I used that line to record on my DVR regular TV shows like "Survivor" and "Amazing race" since my work schedule did not allow me to be home during that time. So, Comcast gave out free to it's subscribers a Digital to Analog converter to get those 1-100 channels. Now my DVR will not function as normal. Cannot use the TV guide system on it, Comcast killed it. So I made a deal with their sales rep and got a standard DVR made by Pace. The unit sucked and I paid $7 monthly. The On-Demand services do have macrovision blockage on them. I even have an old macrovision de-blocker from a allong time ago and it still does not allow me to record On-Demand if I wanted to. Again making a big stink, I got upgraded to a new Motorola DVR 250Gig unit and pay $1 less a month. (I yelled enough) The new box does not have the macrovision on it. I can record to DVR my rented, on-demand free channels and now the future of pay-per view new movies in theaters.
    This just shows how much Comcast is blocking out against having equipment that is not theirs. I wonder how well the NetFlix works on the Wii. I may be able to record what is playing to DVR from it if I want to keep it.
    BTW, Canada was a nice place to visit. People are good and the areas were clean. I'll be more than glad to become one nation. HA HA....

    Selectable Output Control is a technology mandate promoted by movie studios to protect the “early” distribution of movies over cable television. It’s a battle over the video outputs on the back of your cable box or DVR. Who gets to control which outputs you can use—the movie studios or you? On May 7, 2010 the FCC decided that the answer to that question is the movie studios, not you.
    that came from here
    Selectable Output Control | Public Knowledge

    let's say hypothetically speaking, they air new movies before dvd release. it sounds good even if limited on the output selections. a bit to selective i think though. i know piracy isn't supported here. i don't know many who haven't dled/bought or watched a cam copy of a movie at one point in time though. that said, what do you think is going to happen? i can see a guy running the output through a recorder of some sort and the up loading it on the comp and then torrents. so it may speed up the dvd quality movies online. it could be a good thing, if you are a pirate. lol
    it also said Now that the FCC has granted this permission, the MPAA and the movie studios it represents (Paramount, Sony, Fox, Universal, Disney, and Warner Brothers) is able to “turn off” any analog output plug they choose, like those on the back of consumer electronics devices of an entertainment system, during special video-on-demand movies on cable television for 90 days. i can't see them doing that to much. the customer base wouldn't be happy and wouldn't go for it long. kinda had me worried. i think that it'll be fine though.
