I have got a thread going over that AVSForum about the issues with current WMV-HD titles I think Microsoft and the content producers really need to address these issues if they want to format to go places.
#1 – Add a DD or DTS audio track. Currently WMP 9 can not even output WMA Pro 5.1 through SPDIF. So if you have a AVR that can decode the stream it is useless that this point. Almost everyones AVR can handle a DD stream out of SPDIF.
#2 – Everyone hates DRM, so for consumers to purchase the product we need to get the DRM to a state where the consumer doesnt know it’s their. That translates to Offline-DRM and no DRM that requires a internet connection. Even though everyone should have WiFi in their house, the problem is that not everyone does. So get rid of the dial-up DRM and goto Offline-DRM.
#3 – Content! Current only one titles has been released that can be considered “main-stream”. That would be T2 – Extreme Edition. We want to see more content released to us.
