I have a media center behind my TV and a DVD drive in an external enclosure (connected via USB) where I can reach it. I'd like to put a Blu-ray drive in there instead, but I'm concerned that it won't play the movies (maybe it's not HDCP compliant?). What if I get a new enclosure that's external SATA - would this be HDCP compliant, even though it's external? Can the PC (or the Blu-ray licensing module, for that matter) tell the difference?
Here's another question about this topic - I'm not concerned about throughput, since it's USB3, but rather about the drive being HDCP compliant. Has anybody with an external USB drive played a Blu-ray and can confirm if it works or doesn't?
