Re: Broadcom shields set-top boxes from hackers
all these security measures also forget that at some point the video must be viewed. And even with HDCP people will get access to the HD stream.
preventing piracy with more and more technology reminds me of squirrel proof bird feeders. No matter what innovation is put into them the squirrels always get the bird seed eventually.

HDCP is broken, and pirates aren't using the HDMI stream anyways, they are using a capture card, which would ignore this entire on-chip security bullshit anyways. Also, lets not forget, that once its aired, its pretty much fair game to anyone who recorded it to an external HDD and has the matching programs to re-encode it on their computer. Anyone with a TiVO can move any content they want to their computer anyways, so, their on-chip security will only hurt the non-pirates, as always.
