I have some questions for those of you using external receivers as it is apparent the HDCP-20 is vaporware. I'm now looking at other options using one of the new Hauppauge cards that caps component video. In my opinion that is reasonable for HD since broadcast HD won't be above 1080i anytime soon and is rarely a 1080i source anyway, usually 720p sources rebroadcast at different resolutions...okay...before this turns into discussion about all that jazz here is what I really want to know.
I understand how the box is controlled by LMCE, but don't you end up with slop all over the screen with the box's GUI and menus then LMCE's GUI laying over the top of that or how is this situation handled? It's something I've always just assumed could not be dealt with and so have never bothered to ask. For me it was always a deal breaker so I've decided to look into this further and see if maybe I've just been ignorant to some simple solution to this problem.
