That says you're wrong.

I don't use HDMI so whatever "enhanced" audio stuff is lost on me
anyway since my receiver will only take S/PIDIF for digital audio. So
my plan is to real-time capture a BluRay movie from the PS3 via
component/S/PDIF the first time I watch it with the new Hauppauge
device and then watch it with my Myth box every time after that. I
understand there will be compression beyond BluRay, but isn't that the
point of the device over just ripping the disc and bypassing the
encryption of the data?
