He didn't actually come out and say that. He's very cagey (understandably so) about talking about UVD and DRM related topics. I.e., just because HDCP is disconnected from the things for which AMD has released public documentation (thus allowing us open drivers) does NOT necessarily mean that there aren't some crazy links between the UVD and the HDCP.As I said before and Bridgman confirmed, UVD and HDCP units are separate. UVD can work without HDCP and, this is sound and perfect. Also about the data rate of the 1080p movies:
You seem to have missed that that is precisely what we were talking about... GPU to screen. Which is where HDCP comes in to play and hence the kind of crap you'd be messing with if you were to make use of the master key.Also about the data rate of the 1080p movies: Sorry. You don't need that bandwidth. Maybe from GPU to screen,
In other words, that's great that the master key has been dumped, it doesn't really help us with anything.
I know how that works, and it isn't relevant to the topic of HDCP.yes but, a BD-DL is 50 gigs at most. The remaining motion is extracted from the keyframe in the movie. Only keyframe is a full frame and is a picture. Remaining frames are diffs of the previous frame that contains differential color and motion information.
Whatever it was, it is no doubt banned....This key can be useful for ripping HDCP envelope from HDMI signal and enabling legacy compatibility. There was such a device years ago and it was certified HDCP device. I don't remember its name though.
Now though, shouldn't be too much trouble to hack a TV to give you a massive amount of unencrypted video....
@Q: Why do you figure that you need such massively expensive equipment to do this? It shouldn't require much more than any cheap-O off the shelf HDMI capture card and some big disks. As long as you can store the 1.5 Gbps data stream to disk in real time, you are free to decrypt at your leisure.
