That says you're wrong.

I don't use HDMI so whatever "enhanced" audio stuff is lost on me  
anyway since my receiver will only take S/PIDIF for digital audio. So  
my plan is to real-time capture a BluRay movie from the PS3 via  
component/S/PDIF the first time I watch it with the new Hauppauge  
device and then watch it with my Myth box every time after that. I  
understand there will be compression beyond BluRay, but isn't that the  
point of the device over just ripping the disc and bypassing the  
encryption of the data?
