    I researching upgrading my Desktop PC to be able to play HD-DVD movies. I am planning on getting the Xbox 360 HD-DVD Drive to hook up to my PC and I want to be able to play the movies from the PC on my HDTV.

    Will AnyDVD HD require the use of an HDCP compliant video card? I want to be able to rip the movies to my harddrive and them use a DVI-I to HDMI cable to output the video. I am not totally sure if this is even possible. Any input on this situation would be greatly appreciated.

    Since AnyDVD/HD will present decrypted content (by decrypting it in the background) to any HD-DVD player, there will be no requirement for HDCP - neither graphics card nor monitor, since this is only a binding requirement for encrypted material.

    Sounds great. Cannot wait to add AnyDVD HD to my collection of great Slysoft products.

    AnyDVD folk PLEASE release an Alpha or Beta of AnyDVD/HD now. I was going to invest in an all new Video Card and Monitor JUST so I could watch HD-DVD's in all their glory. I have the output capabilities but my Video Card and Monitor are not HDCP compatible.

    ATI X1600 Video
    Acer 20" 1650*1050 Wide Screen
    MS X-Box 360 HD-DVD
    and a Big Box with lots of horsepower and memory.

    I understand that there can be no support for an alpha or bata product but some of us registered users are getting very desprite.

    I think the first stable is due out in a few weeks.

    Hey sh-t, I guess it's finally time to rob a bank to get a:

    Are you saying, that there is going to be a DIFFERENT product from the standard AnyDVD? If so, I don't think that will go over with anyone very well.

    sickboy88, it seems you will have to buy AnyHDDVD separately from AnyDVD. But there will be an upgrade path James says.

    *sigh* If you robbed a bank to get a PX-B900A then you'd be a fool. AnyDVD-HD will only work for HD-DVD from what has been stated by Slysoft at this point. The Plextor PX-B900A is only a Blu-Ray burner.

    It won't go over well being a new product? How so? I don't, yet, own a HD-DVD player [let alone burner] for my system. If they release a new update that handled DVDs and HD-DVDs I wouldn't want to pay an upgrade cost for this if I didn't need it or expect to use it. On the the other hand if they released AnyDVD-HD as a separate release and allowed existing owners of AnyDVD licenses to upgrade at a reduced price then I would agree with this.

    There's no reason to make a person who uses AnyDVD [and for anytime in the near future plans on not dealing with HD-DVD] pay for it.

    Anyway, just my two cents.

    I understand it is the same just for newer encryptions.

    James. What are the hardware requirements for AnyDVD HD? I am researching what I need to upgrade.

    Currently I have a 2.4 Ghz Celeron. ATI 9600 SE. 512 RAM. I know this system sucks.

    Option 1 - Upgrade Vid Card to x1600 and RAM and keep processor.

    Option 2 - Upgrade to E6300 1.83 Ghz Core 2 Due. X1900 or X1950 Vid Card.

    I would prefer to save the money but not having to get new MB, Processor, and RAM but I realize that I may need to do that to be able to play HD. Currently I cannot get my system to display the King Kong HD-DVD that I ripped to my HD or even from the HD-DVD. I think it might partly be a software issue.

    Any advice anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
