I wouldn't worry too much about this just yet. There are already features that Blu-ray players have to support to get a license, but which the studios don't actually use. For example, "Cinavia" copy protection has been pretty much ignored by most studios.

I suspect this will continue to be the case into the brave, new, UHD Blu-ray era. That is, on-line activation may be a feature the player has to implement to get a license, but whether any studios will actually USE that -- and deal with the torch-and-pitchfork carrying mobs that result -- is yet to be seen.

Like the Image Constraint Token to prevent hidef playback over component. All players had to have it but the studios never used it on disc.

Instead they just killed component video.

As I'm reading all this, the phone-home facility is for UHD only, not existing Blu-ray, so the advice at blu-ray.com to stock up on existing players is just panicked weirdness.

Can be lots of complaining consumers with no internet connection: I buy the player and disc legal, but cannot view without internet.

Maybe in the UK, but not here.

It would be dumb of them to try such a thing.
Requiring an internet connection in the HT or TV viewing area would definitely bring the "mobs" out.

Attached is a quick and dirty pic from a piece of gear I have. There are RCAs and XLRs on the same pig tail.

Here's a better pic to illustrate, 24 channels of audio I/O in a 3.3 inch (2U if I calc right) 1/2 rack unit.

I had completely forgotten about those. Despite the fact that my old Aragon Stage One used that for multi-channel input.
