There was a thread regards this device in the Software forum and, while I am adamnant regards the unfettered presetation and expresion of entertainment and such..I DO see this device having it's place and preserving what we at HTF demand in DVD releases. I think a little history would help settle some fears about this technology, at least as I understand it's function. When the V-Chip was introduced, the majority of the entertainment industry pronounced censorship...EXCEPT for Steven Bochco. He saw it as the saviour of leading edge fare on regular network TV. It gave parents the opportunity to filter from their kids material the parents felt was not quite family fair..without requiring the producers of said material to self edit or censor. The fact that a program such as The Shield now exists...shows that entertainment can still take risks..and family concerns are to some degree addressed. I see this device as offering the same thing AND NOT being contrary to HTF's position of original cut..unedited or censored material. You go to your fav store..buy whatever title...original theatrical cut..and you as an adult watch it thru and thru. Say you have a 10 y.o. who can handle the story line but you don't want them hearing the 7 dirty words...this device can achieve that. As a parent..there were times when watching something with the whole family that I wish I had known a certain word or "view" was in the material. And being realistic...no one can pre-screen EVERYTHING before you sit down as a whole to watch it. Example...the musical "Annie" ... Family material..but towards the end no more than a coupla "god damn"'s come from Tim Curry's mouth!!! Again let me state in no uncertain terms...I want my DVD's to be what was in the theater...nothing less! I want OAR, original content with every four letter word, offensive characterization and ALL the violence at my disposal! HOWEVER...to allow parents to sanitize said material for more family friendly consumption is an assett. No need for dual releases..no censoring content. PLEASE..let's avoid liberal versus conservative etc. type arguments here that characterized a thread a coupla years ago about re-edited versions of films similar to airline cuts being released.
