it doesn't "ask", i think you have cinavia backwards.
The audio is sending out a message. If the player has cinavia it knows what that means and follows the instructions.
If the player doesn't have cinavia, it doesnt even 'hear' the cinavia message.Example.
It's like only being able to understand english.
Imagine a movie scene. It shows a cafe where two italian people are having a conversation (in italian). There there is no english dialogue, and no subtitles. The two people have a 5 min conversation.
If you only speak english, you have no idea what they said.
However, your italian buddy roars out with laughter, because he understands the dialogue (the secret message!).
replace the italian audio with a cinavia "mute the audio" message, and that's as far as i understand it, the protection. You are a pre-cinavia media player, oblivious to whats going on, but content to do your job. Italian speaking people are effectively cinavia capable players.
P.s. - I am by no means stating that italians are as evil as cinavia.
