Re: Broadcom shields set-top boxes from hackers
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.
