There haven’t been any particuarly noteworthy developments in the HTPC world lately, and I’ve been very busy at work so ther haven’t been as many articles published. What follows is a brief round-up of updates that I haven’t yet had time to write about.

There have been a couple of interesting articles on Anandtech in the last couple of days. First was a review of a cheap CEC device by Pulse-Eight which hopefully signals the arrival of more choice for HTPC remote controls. Of greater interest is the news of a “hack” for VLC which enables the play-back of commercial (encrypted) BluRays. Nightly builds of VLC since 1.2 include support for BluRay playback. All you need for it to fully function is an AACS keys database, a quick google should provide one.
