Thanks for the link JB, that helped alot.

@Nick - The FAQ JB linked to said you did not have to be connected to view downloaded content - plus I assume if you have the physical disc you would not need an internet connection to unlock it. Would that be a bad assumption?

Does anyone have an ULTRAVIOLET disc yet? (other than the movie CatBrat!!!) :-)

I have the B-D of Jaws, which has the UltraViolet feature. I haven't done anything with it yet.

A lot of my discs have said Ultraviolet, but I don't seem to care about that feature.

So much for me ever having my perfect home theater. I'll leave it to Axiom to make a demo room along these guidelines, and I'll check it out when I visit.

I am going to be happy with 7.2

11.1/2/3/4 is going too far if I need that I will go to the theatre.

I have three. Two TV seasons and a movie.

UV is marketed as a standard, easy way to organize all of your digital copies. Let's see if I can remember the cluster mess, that was me trying to claim my videos.

I have a Vudu account, and Vudu is supposed to work with UV, but it turns out I had to sign up for a separate UV account. I didn't realize until it was too late that I could have used my Walmart.com account for both UV and Vudu, but instead I ended up with three different logins.

Not that it mattered, because I had to go to a specific website for the movie I was trying to claim. And Flixster.com for the TV seasons. But I could just log into either site, I had to go to the URL that was on the piece of paper inside the BD case. For the TV seasons, it was: areallylongurlspellingoutthetvshowseason1

I have my broswer set to not accept 3rd party cookies. I've never had it cause trouble (except for advertisers trying to track me). But the UV claiming process used inline-frame inside of inline-frame linking the various sites together, and they all communicated via cookies. Took me a while to figure out why I was getting "welcome" e-mails, but the site just seemed to hang.

So after a lot of work I now can watch my UV movies on Vudu, and Flixster on my phone right? Wrong. None of the titles I claimed showed up on Vudu, so I can't watch them on my TV. And only the two seasons I claimed on Flixster show up on my phone.

Yet, I do think this is an improvement over the previous process to claim digital copies, which when you get the discs a year after they're released, at a discounted price, the claim codes have expired.

I have a few Ultraviolet digital copies, but have done nothing with them after all of the bad press over at blu-ray.com about it. People there are still buying region free versions of movies from overseas that come with a "true" digital copy, so something is amiss somewhere. I might have to try a few Ultraviolet discs tonight to see for myself.

Did a little digging and I am seeing something that says that it does need to "stream" down to your device, but it sounds more like a download than a true stream, so that is good. Just plan ahead so that you have the bandwidth/time to download it before you need it. Also, there seems to be a limit on most/all of the movies that they can be "streamed" 3 times.

Who knows. Maybe those folks over at Blu-Ray.com are just crazy.

Ooops. JP is out of luck.
