That would be a great feature. But I wouldn't hold my breath.

Is the PCH too slow for this? I've always found that playing video over the net to cause more buffer time on the PCH vs. a computer.

There's not that much titles anyway..and watching tv shows/movies LEGALLY has never been a good experience. That's why people use torrent and usenet.

PCH is quick enough. Its being looked into by PCH/Syabas.

People use those because they don't want to pay for the media. It is as simple as that.

Sorry, I hate to disagree but I find your statement suspect.
Every DVD title (800+++) I stream on my EyeHome, and now my PCH are legally purchased and I have the DVD and receipts to prove it.

What does that have to do with acquiring the media via torrent?

Are you suggesting that you go out and buy a dvd and then instead of simply ripping it, you download it via torrent? That seems pretty dumb to me but more power to ya.

Lots of folks, including myself, have ripped dvd collections to a server in order to create a video jukebox and/or backup the dvds. In the US, this is illegal so I'm probably (in the eyes of the law) no better or worse than the torrent downloaders. I simply know that I paid for the media and thus, didn't steal from anyone.

Stop playing dumb. Everyone knows how and why torrent is used.

It's not dumb. You are showing yourself to be totally ignorant. I download HD rips of HD dvd's I own because they are far better quality than I can rip myself. The rippers are super nerds at encoding software. They will do test runs ,eek the best possible quality for the bitrate. I don't fancy doing all that work so download their work in around 45 mins. You may like low quality all in one software rips, I don't.

People also pay for usenet, it's not free.

Sure.. whatever you say...

If you can convince yourself that there is nothing wrong with it, that's all that matter I guess.
