Prevent HDMI signal drops from Apple TV to Samsung TV
Authored by: dsgdgsdg on Dec 11, '08 07:37:06AM

This problem exists purely because of the (faulty) DRM systems that are forced upon paying customers (the HDCP part of the HDMI spec.). Why on earth should anyone have to go into the service menu of their expensive TV, and run the risk of bricking the TV, just to work around a problem caused by a feature that none of the paying customers would want or need?

Personally I do not buy any products anymore with any kind of DRM, and that includes failed DRM like CSS on DVDs. Of course, as many modern films etc. are only available on crippled platforms, I have no choice but to pirate, as I cannot buy a 100% functional product.

Sell products that are as good as technology allows, and I will be your customer. Sell products that are as crippled as possible and there is no way I will waste time or money on your POS.

Yes. Except you have another choice, besides IP theft, and that is to Boycott it entirely. Turn your back on it. Stop consuming. Tell others why.
