I would be seriously concerned if a projector or monitor I was looking
at purchasing did NOT have HDCP. Grated my MythBox can't do the HDCP
linking but I may get a HD-DVD or BlueRay player in the future that
would require it. Assuming I purchase a home theater receiver that has
HDMI switching, both my mythbox and the I rez-dvd player could live
together just fine.
