    If you spend a month’s salary on a top-of-range computer display or HDTV you may be disappointed when playing high-def DVDs on a Windows Vista PC.

    According to PCWorld :

    “Vista, the next version of Windows that’s slated to appear in about a year, will feature a new systemwide content protection scheme called PVP-OPM (Protected Video Path Output Protection Management). This downgrades video resolution or blocks the picture entirely if the connected display doesn’t support content protection. If your monitor doesn’t work with PVP-OPM, all you’ll likely see is either a fuzzy rendition of your high-def flick or Hollywood’s version of the Blue Screen of Death–a message warning you that the display has been ‘revoked’.”

    It seems that all the good intentions of PVP-OPM will be to no avail since it will also “shut out plenty of law-abiding video watchers whose current displays aren’t future-proof.”<SCRIPT type=text/javascript></SCRIPT><SCRIPT src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
