This is *useless* for putting Blu-ray into your system. HDCP encrypts
HDMI-- by the time the signal is on the HDMI cable, it is an decoded
and uncompressed signal. You'd need to build HDMI capture hardware
that could *lossily* recompress it on the way back into the system,
and that means quality loss. It also means losing the navigation,
menus, multiple audio and video tracks, extras, and everything else
that makes Blu-ray Blu-ray.
