But then you are still removing quality from the movie. You wont get the
advanced audio codecs (HDMI only). And Most movies you only get 1080p over
HDMI w/HDCP. AFAIK, all players output a lower res over component. So at
loading the disc is the best option until AACS and BD+ is cracked for linux
and we have h.264 video card offload.
