This seems to be a hot topic. I agree with colin jones. This is not an issue of playing back 1080p HD content (I am doing that now - recorded HD content from a FTA digital TV station plays back nicley - but am experiencing 100% CPU usage which is a worry on a Quad Core AMD 2.2Ghz Phenom / 2GB 1066 RAM). It is a matter of playing back 1080p HD content from a HDCP complint blu ray disc. Whilst I appreciate  what Indulis is saying and it sounds logical re DVI or VGA,  I do not believe this will achieve 1080p playback from an encrypted HDCP compliant blu ray disc. Prove me wrong please!

CAN WE PLEASE STOP MIXING AACS AND HDCP?!?

AACS == MPAA crap, used to encrypt stuff on the disc
HDCP == Intel crap, used to encrypt stuff on TDMS (DVI or HDMI)

And if you buy this crap and even say thats important for LMCE, it is just you who supports the restrictive crap with your money.

I knew this thread would spiral out of control rather quickly. I really do not care if LMCE plays BD or HD Discs out of the package. But I really would like it to play .mkv and .ts files which is totally possible as it is being done WELL, with other media players dvd playback software. So if there is no hope for mplayer lets hope Xine get it's #$%# together for the next release including the really bad jerky playback of SD dvd's after a while requiring a router reload.
