Woo hoo.  More overpriced junk, while those of us who are do-it-yourself'ers are left out again.

You have to understand what CEDIA is.  It is not for the DIY customer.

That said, there is a disconnect between Microsoft and their consumers.

Chris - can you confirm there is still a major problem with this setup, specifically, if you use the media extenders you can get the premium recorded HDTV on any extender but you can't access Niveus movie library?  If so, a potential workaround would be to skip the extenders and have several media servers connected to a matrixed HDMI distribution hub, but then that would be incredibly expensive and wouldn't allow for sharing of recorded TV.  It appears that what is really needed now is a Media Extender with a Blu-Ray drive that can also access DVD's and Blu-rays on an HD.

Can someone explain the legality of software like movie library? Doesn't it explicitly break css on dvd? I assume it also rips blu-ray to hard disk. Is this not illegal?

Not that I really care, it is an awesome product. I just thought they would run into legal trouble trying to sell something like this.

You can access the Nivues Movie Library, but it must contain files that the Extender can play (eg. not VIDEO_TS).

Oh I know CEDIA is for vendors.  I'm just pissed that we're forced to buy this stuff instead of building it ourselves to get Cablecard, TV Pack, etc.
