After all the recent effort Sony has put into recently to increase the 'user experience' of playstation (shutting down anyone who does legitimate hacking). I don't want to one day be sued for connecting my blue ray player to a non sony-approved television, which is likely not too far fetched by their standards.

"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself--anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face...; was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime..." - George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 5
