A recent review of the Copyright laws in the UK could clarify things: One of the key changes it recommends is to legalise format shifting for personal use – the copying of CDs or DVDs onto digital music players or computers. Although no individual has been prosecuted for ripping music, having an outdated legal framework has stifled some innovations, the report said. Some think the change is overdue. ”Format shifting has been implemented in all European countries apart from the UK, the Republic of Ireland and Malta,” said Susan Hall, media specialist at law firm Cobbetts LLP. ”In today’s world, this doesn’t reflect consumer behaviour. The new regulations will allow more flexibility for consumers to enjoy content they have paid for in the way they want to,” she added. More details on http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-13429217

Choosing the right TV to buy can be a fun task. However, the list of features and specifications has increased enormously over the years, which makes choosing more complex. Many years ago, beyond the size and look of a TV, there were few other things to consider. Now you have LCD, LED LCD, Plasma, Projectors, Freeview, Freeview HD, Freesat, Freesat HD , Full HD resolution, applications, internet connectivity, smartphone remote control applications etc etc. If you do wish to connect your TV to your home network and the internet, which will increasingly be more and more useful, then one thing to look out for is DLNA compatibility. Digital Living Network Alliance® (DLNA) began in 2003 when a collection of companies from around the world agreed that they all made better products when those products were compatible. The latest version of the DLNA Interoperability Guidelines, version 1.5, was published in March 2006, and then expanded in October 2006. These guidelines enlarge the capabilities of a DLNA-defined network to include more home and mobile devices. To see what products are DLNA certified have a look on http://www.dlna.org/products/ If you want help with designing and installing a home media network system then contact us on http://www.personalmediasolutions.co.uk/
