Why do you consider that so unusual? It’s more or less standard nouveau riche behavior to prefer the rare or harder to get over the more common.

Unacceptable answer.

You’re welcome.

I’d actually call in sick and do it now. Admitting to felonious conduct in public isn’t exactly an eye-rolling matter. At least, that is what a civilized person who is made aware...

You do know that ripping a disk for your own use and then selling the disk is theft, right? Once you sell the disk you no longer own the license to the material encoded thereon.

What I don't get is why anyone would use HDMI in a "permanent install" anyway. IMO, if it's at all permanent (run through walls, etc.) then one shouldn't use HDMI cables. Baluns (e.g. HDbaseT right...

A good general rule is that the more idiotically hyperbolic the arguments for something are, the less merit the position being advanced has.
