There ARE other ways to get guide data - just not free and not as easy to set up as the default WMC info.

Maybe (I'm just guessing here) they are using some approved DRM on the server, and that DTCP-IP will be used to transmit to the client.

I wonder how they will manage the "copy once" factor with...

I'm starting to kick the idea of a central server around again, as I'm out of space for hard drives. I'm also moving from a condo to a house (my first one!) so there will be several televisions and...

Do you have another TrueHD track to test?
