I'm looking to purchase my first blue-ray player, and am considering the Sony BDP-S570.
I'm planning to connect it via HDMI to my Toshiba 40XV645U television, which is supposed to be HDCP compliant.
Thing is, my current DVD collection includes a number of discs I had transferred from things like old Super-8 home movies and other personal stuff - no encryption, DRM, or region coding on these.
Is this likely to be an issue? I ask because there's a review posted (05/12/2010) at the Sony website from someone who had trouble playing some material over HDMI to a "non-HDCP" device . . . but aren't all devices with an HDMI conncector HDCP compliant?
Here's the review ("Buyer Beware") - the guy was pretty upset:http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...52921666077660
So my question is . . . will the S570 play my own, homemade DVDs over the HDMI connection to my TV?
