I was reading that Avatar's DRM could prevent it from playing. For standalone players, this is solved with a firmware upgrade. But with an HTPC, is this going to be a firmware upgrade of the BD-ROM drive or an upgrade to the player software? If the latter, how does that work if I only have the version of powerDVD 8 usually provided with the drive. Unlike the full version of powerDVD 9 it doesn't allow many upgrades.
