Recommended Read: The State of Blu-Ray in HTPCs

For those of you Home Theater PC enthusiasts wanting Blu-ray (with lossless audio and the best video compression) on their HTPC, I recommended an article by Carlton Bale on the subject.

Carlton disucsses the difficulties of getting Blu-ray on the HTPC, the fact that there is no protected audio path (PAP) available on any computer, AACS protection and the many other issues.  It's an excellent read on a subject that I think will become more-and-more important to HTPC users in the coming year.
