I dont expect anyone to reply but im curious how many people download copyrighted content or how many people are absolutely against it. Only curious about opinions.

No, I haven't, because I don't know the technique of how it's done. However, a couple of years ago I viewed a film my buddy had downloaded and I wasn't impressed! I think he said it was " a screener" where a guy goes into a theater, with a camcorder, and makes a copy then sends it out over the Net.
The sound was muggy, you could also hear people in the audience coughing and talking in the background, the interior scenes were very dark, and halfway through the movie, a large woman got up to go to the lobby or toilet and blocked one of the only good scenes in the whole movie!
I subscribe to a cable movie channel (4 SD channels + 2 HD channels) and see most of the films I'm interested in and many of them are in Hi-Def. So, to me, it's not worth the effort in spoiling a good movie by seeing a free but a very crappy copy!

So, you get VOD movies for free? Is this because somebody near where you live ordered a movie and your digital tuner is picking up the radiated signal? I don't think you would be getting the VOD movies directly from the cable as they would be encrypted. If they didn't scramble the signal, people would be getting it for free and they would go broke!
Please explain. Thanks.
Edit: You mentioned a broadband connection which would indicate that you are getting the VODs through your computer. Now, I'm really confused!

Form a vigilante... QUICK ! Post hast !

A rather lop-sided thread...

Reality does not exist in this thread.

REAL LIFE goes on with or without this thread.

a screener(often abr as SCR) is actually a dvd quality copy sent out to reviewers, ect.

There is CAM which is where someone takes a camcorder in.

there is Telesync, which is the same thing, except they are synced with an actual audio sorce.

there is SCR, which was explained above. except it is often an unfinished copy, in the case of say xmen origins there was not special effects.

and then there is R5, which is copies released to russia.

As for do I download? I'm a movie watcher, and I can't stand crap quality video. so downloading movies, especially those that are in the theater, is pretty much worthless to me.

I also have a netflix subscription with blu-ray... no need to download movies.

I am however an AVID fansub downloader, for anime. :/

I'll download and watch a scr or cam media before I decide to spend money at the Theatre or download an avi or mkv file and if I like the movie I'll buy it in BD or SD.
