But then you are still removing quality from the movie.  You wont get the
advanced audio codecs (HDMI only).  And Most movies you only get 1080p over
HDMI w/HDCP.  AFAIK, all players output a lower res over component.  So at
this point.

loading the disc is the best option until AACS and BD+ is cracked for linux
and we have h.264 video card offload.
