I was just
reading one of the Zune threads over at The Green Button and a user
commented that licensing might be the reason why the Zune doesn’t syncing HD recordings. The idea being if they didn’t license a Dolby
Digital decoder, then they couldn’t convert the audio. My train of thought went….
Damn, probably right.
Another feature lost to licensing
Wait, doesn’t Vista Home Premium and Ultimate include Dolby
Yeah, but then you would have to limit syncing of HD content
to Home Premium and Ultimate. Stupid footnotes
no one ever reads.
Oh, but Media Center is only included in Home Premium and Ultimate.
Dang, why doesn’t Zune support syncing HD recordings then?
