    If you run anydvd hd and copy the movie to your hard drive do you need a HDCP video card or monitor or will anydvd strip out all the protection and let it run?

    Yes, and you don't need to copy it on the harddisk to watch.

    And let me give you an example as to why this is so wonderful. First nVidia 7900 GS card I got, not HDCP compliant, but plays back HD beautifully. So I get another brand of 7900 GS card that is HDCP compliant, problem is, it stutters as bad as my 6600GT.

    HDCP = Hold Damn Consumers Prisoner

    It'll definately be good for me, as my computer's primary monitor is a 22" CRT with resolution capabilities well beyond 1920x1080, but no HDCP, lol.
     
  6. I downloaded trial anydvd hd and purchased power dvd ultra. My problem is I get a power dvd error message "Incompatible graphics driver. Please use default driver for playback" when I try to watch any hd dvd . Anyone know of a soulition or do I need to buy a HDCP video card
    My HTPC
    Gb drs3 mobo
    E4300 OC to 3.0
    XFX Geforce 7600 gs non HDCP
    2 gig 667 ddr2

    How about upgrading them? :p
    I believe PowerDVD requires newer drĂ­vers.

    Your drivers are a bit old. The latest non-beta Win2k/XP 32-bit release are the ForceWare 93.71 WHQL'ed drivers dated Nov 2, 2006.

    I don't know if this will fix the problem, however.
     
  12. Thanks I will try new drivers. BTW the drivers i currently have are the latest that i got from xfxforce.com today. I guess they don't update them too often??
     
  13. success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you James and Drink you just saved me $$$ on a new video card

    Glad to help. And... I thought I had replied to your reply to me but apparently I never actually clicked on 'Submit reply'. Oops.

    What I said was it seems many manufacturers are pretty slow in releasing updated drivers.

    If you do not have a card that came OC'ed by the manufacturer or has any special features not found on a normal card of its type then you are better off just getting drivers from the Nvidia site, IMO. It's always best to read the release notes first but Nvidia releases updates [on a fairly regular schedule] that among other things can resolve incompatibilities with PC games, etc.
