    Pirates decided that the copy protection scheme for HD DVD was worth a shot. The result? The movie is entitled Serenity and was made available as a .EVO file which is playable on most DVD playback software packages. The file was encoded in MPEG-4 VC-1 resulting in 19.6 GB worth of hard disk space. The first full-resolution rip of an HD DVD movie on BitTorrent. Who knows, maybe this is yet another factor in the HD war.

    An announcement less than a month ago by an anonymous programmer known as Muslix64 specified that the copy protection on HD DVD had been bypassed. The open-sourceprogram to implement this was called BackupHDDVD. The software cleverly avoids (for how long?) legal justice by placing the responsibility of cracking on the user, not the software. To extract an unencrypted copy of the HD DVD source material the user has to fetch that disc's volume or title key.

    CyberLink, the makers of PowerDVD playback software, have already assured everyone that their software is not responsible for extracting the title keys from the media. Content providers, on the other hand, have declared that they reserve the right to invalidate known pirated keys in the future. Of course, they will have to figure out which application gets the volume keys (Cyberlink has not yet been cleared). Future titles could potentially require, as soon as a disc is inserted, that the user upgrade their software in order to play discs.

    The Chronicles of Riddick just popped up on bit-hdtv as well. It's in this EVO format and it's set at 24.94GB. Exciting stuff but what the heck is an EVO file?

    Great this will most certainly make movie companies shy away from the format....unless BR gets cracked too.

    yeah, i won't be dl'ing 20+ gb files for a movie. i'm sure they will look 20 times better than that of my 1.5gb file, but i'm not gonna wait 1+ week for one movie and that's not guaranteed that it will work or even worth it. gl.

    As mentioned, TKDB.cfg is a important hash file that stores SHA1 hash of VTKF000.AACS file on HD-DVD disk, HD video title and the respective title key. The default TKDB.cfg has the following value, with the value of title key for various HD movie titles (on the rightmost column) been stripped off to incomplete, invalid or empty.

    If you want to know more about it, It'll probably be easier to just follow the thread on doom9

    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)
