Is it even that important for her uses?...probably not. After a certain point, it was more of an exercise just to explore how this UV thing works, after all.
All I can say is that it is not nearly as smoothed out as I would have anticipated.
I'm with you, just yanking your chain a bit.
I also thought it was much simpler, I just waited until I had a few certificates (I have relatively few BluRays compared to some, and only some of those came with the extra dvd or Ultraviolet copies) and just do it in a session on the Ultraviolet website. I only did that as I was going to visit family over xmas and wanted to have something perhaps to entertain myself with or if the family hadn't seen some of these, to have these as backup. I had no idea that Ultraviolet had marketed it's tech to "retailers" (believe that is the phrase they use on their website) and that I'd be going to various other websites and making new accounts/passwords, various software to be downloaded to my computer and all that crap, I just kept seeing Ultraviolet copy so figured I'd be going to Ultraviolet.com and having a simple way of managing it all.
I don't have an ipad, no smart phone, no long trips by plane where I'm just sitting there bored....so the mobile or downloadable versions are only so much use. At 2.65 gigs for the TDKR download (only 1.5 gigs for Wrath of the Titans), can't imagine it's going to look all that great if I hook my laptop up to my flat panel even via HDMI, but I haven't tried yet. A good 50% of a movie like TDKR for me is the audio through my 7.3 setup, not the dialog or detailed plot development
let alone watching it on a tiny screen.
