Forgive me if this question has been asked already (I haven't found it in the current forums)
I have a Samsung BluRay player (BD5500) this reads files from my PC using across a network using AllShare. Trouble is, when I copy my BluRay disks to the PC (to save having a shlef full of disks!) when played through the bluray player Cinavia mutes the audio after about 20 minutes or so because of the protection on the file.
Does the WDTV Live suffer this annoyance?
I know the film companies are trying to stop copying / theft, but why can't I use the new technology (streaming media players) to keep my films on a PC?
Yes people will argue that it means I can rip other peoples disks, and this is technically illegal, but what about my own disks?
All I want to do is have them stored on a PC so I can access them easily!
I've been considering a WDTV box for a while, but what's the point if I have the same problem as with the BD5500?

Hope I haven't stirred up a hornets nest!
