Yet Another Cinavia Thread (YACT): (I didn't find a thread specific to this topic)
While I use TMT5 to playback Blu-ray rental disks, I mainly use it to playback my DVD and Blu-ray rips (I have a legit retail version of every ripped disk). If PC Blu-ray software companies (i.e. ArcSoft) are required to implement Cinavia, I probably won't buy/upgrade to a newer version. I expect most people won't, which will significantly reduce sales and potentially kill the PC software Blu-ray player market. Some sales will still occur, especially for OEM copies, but I expect a majority of sales are to people like us with HTPCs and a ripped movie library.
More Cinavia FUD or a legitimate concern? As long as MPC-HC stays around and/or older software continues to work, we might be OK , but our options may become limited if more and more disks become 'infected' with Cinavia.
