Oh...I was remarking about playing it through my Tivo, not my PC
You can stream netflix through your Tivo?
I wasn't aware David Icke was participating in this thread.
Perhaps if they prevented all copying, but this is just certain streams.
The Ethernet card should only be able to distinguish packets. So this leads me to believe that a certain sequence of bits will turn this feature on, and then automatically send a response back. Which means anyone would be able to connect to your computer and disable copying data sent to you. I could see a hacker exploiting this so that intrusion attempts couldn't be saved to log files.
It would also mean that anyone can spoof having this feature by sending a packet with the expected response and then copy whatever they wanted.
Unless I'm completely mistaken about how this is going to work(which is very possible) it seems like it could be pretty dangerous.
Intel Processers > AMD Processers in my experience. More efficient. Phenom's are an exception.
Intel Corp. < AMD Corp. Or whatever they are organised.
I don't like Intel as a company, but they have a good product.
The older series 2 can't do it. I upgraded to a Tivo Premier and it has that capability, also amazon video on demand, blockbuster video on demand, youtube, pandora, etc.
Damn I need Tivo.
Once these new Intel Core chips come to the market, here comes a boom of Tivo sales .
Get a 360 instead
Actually, I don't care, if I really wanted to I could jail break my Apple TV which I got for $99 (normal price) and copy it that way, but I'm a law abiding citizen so why do something illegal
And your WII and your X-box.
That's cool, I thought only xbox and PS3 could do it.
To tie this diversion into the thread: It would be fairly insane for media companies to tie their HD content to one chip with the proliferation of non-PC media streaming devices, such as all the ones mentioned above (and some TVs do it on their own). That seems to be the trend, rather than consumers putting their PCs in their living rooms and connecting them to their TVs. Ergo, media companies that hold tons of licenses might be shooting themselves in the foot by tying HD content to Intel chips, since as far as I know these devices will never use Intel chips.
Sounds like marketing to get you to buy up the current generation of chips?
I'm not a capitalist, but I endorse this statement.
If you stop by a Best-Buy, there are a couple of different brands of tv-internet appliances that let you stream movies, currently.
