You can get the HDFury boxes cheaper at monoprice.com.  Definitely
research the features of HDFury vs others.  HDFury does support HDCP,
and the later versions have a lot of other nifty features that you
might not find elsewhere.  A lot of those boxes have problems with
image shifting, lack of brightness, etc, but the HDFury is supposed to
deal with all of them and create a really nice picture.
