And the computers can be instructed not to make things easy. Or did you notice most of these will require the use of video cards that support HDCP? AND can detect the use of splitters and/or repeaters? Here's a hint: "A repeater is connected to your system. Some video applications do not support HDCP when a repeater is present."

That's why 4K BluRay content won't be allowed on PCs, only dedicated devices with protected hardware paths.
