Comment Do you know they are already doing this? (Score 1) 80

Yes! If you watch a streaming version of a movie on Netflix, it is usually different than the same movie on DVD or Blu-ray. That is because the streaming version has been cropped to 16:9, while the disc version may have been 2.35:1 or something different. It's one reason I usually opt for discs on recent movies, instead of streaming.

Comment Seven cent nickel? (Score 1) 702

The nickel today is not what it was fifteen years ago. Do you know what this country needs today? A seven cent nickel. Yes siree, we've been using the five-cent nickel in this country since 1492. Now that's pretty near 100 years daylight saving. Now why not give the seven cent nickel a chance? If that works out, next year we can have an eight cent nickel. Think what that would mean? You could go to a newsstand, buy a three cent newspaper, and get the same nickel back again. One nickel carefully used would last a family a life-time.

significant removal of features

WMC to me was a waste of time considering all the great Linux based solutions out there.

How many of those "great Linux based solutions" support CableCard? I have TWC, and I want to be able to view and record programs. None of the Linux based solutions I looked at will support a CableCard-enabled tuner such as HDHomeRun Prime.
