Depends how important it is to James and weather or not he's going to drop money on new components that are PlayReady 3.0 compliant just so he can attempt to reverse engineer things. (note that I used the word attempt and not can).
All of this effort to gain some resolution that will have marginal impact on quality to the viewer, what the industry is calling better colour (10bit, so no banding) and brighter bits here and there.
When I watch my 1080p Blu-rays on my Sony 300es with Madvr in the chain, I can't imagine things looking better.
I ask myself, is that way it looks in nature, does it resemble like looking out a window _ yes it does.
This whole thing with PlayReady 3.0, AACS 2.0, HDPC 2.2 .... has become such an irritation, that I think I'm going to throw in the towel, I'm fed-up with it.
I get the impression that that the industry can't seem to decide what the hell is needed or what they want, so they just keep tacking on implementations as they go along.
Right now I wish the whole thing would collapse in their face, it would teach them a lesson.
