Longhorn to Require Monitor-Based DRM

emg178 This already happens at the video card level (1266 comments)

ATI cards with component video output have a macrovision restriction for protected content. It will not display a dvd above 480p. So, if you want to scale a movie with the computer and display on your hdtv, you have to run a decrypter program.

You can do it in real time w/ dvdidle, or just copy to hard drive and then play.
