I'm glad Roku will look at this--
not to beat a dead horse but if CE companies have a cavalier attitude on how they implement copyright protection, and it impedes non-infringing users, consumers need to call them out. We're already at a disadvantage in so many ways. HDCP does *nothing* to prevent piracy in general, it really just annoys consumers (when it fails, and it often does) and people interested in "fair use". When it's implemented in an overreaching way, by intention or not, it just makes things worse.
So my point here is less to get this fixed tomorrow, but to right a wrong.
Right a wrong?!?! I don't think so. Piracy is "Wrong" so it seems that if you want to "Right a wrong", you would be better served taking your fight there.
Roku will look at it? Yeah probably, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
