    Im using "PowerDVD 6.5 HD-DVD edition" and it works fine but only for HD-DVD
    if i want bouth HD-DVD and BLU-RAY working i have to get PowerDVD 7.3
    but i cant get any of the 7.x vertions to play HD-DVD/BLU-RAY, it plays DVD/xvid ect. just fine ?

    how come the 6.5 version is working but non of the 7.x versions is working for HD-DVD/BLU-RAY playback ?

    Read Cyberlinks Web Site

    The 6.5 you have will only work with one type of HD disc. 7.0 is not for HD or BD. You need purchase PowerDVD Ultra edition. Their version 7.3 (available only from support after purchase of Ultra will play both versions.

    I did misunderstand your original post did not specify ultra edition. In that you have Power 6.5 am I right to assume that it came bundled with a computer? I suspect that the version you have was specially tailored for that system. What are your hardware specs? Do they meet those required by Cyberlink? How is your computer connected to your monitor?

    no i build the system my self and PowerDVD is the same type tryel as the others

    sorry why? isent that the hole point with "AnyDVD-HD" ?
    that yout dont have to have HDCP-ready GFX/monitor
    and if i can play it with 6.5 why not in 7.xxx ?

    This appears to be your problem. The cyberlink website states that only the following Nvidia cards are supported by 7.X Ultra. It may be the case that 6.5 supported lesser cards but 7.X Ultra does not.

    7600 GT
    7800 GTX 512
    7900 GX2
    7900 GTX
    7950 GX2

    This is not an issue with HDCP and/or AnyDVD/HD. Rather how PowerDVD Ultra 7.X passes off processing to the GPU. With ATI the X1600, X1800 & X1900 series cards are supported while only the X1900 series cards support HDCP. Additionally Power 7.0 will play properly via an analog (standard VGA) connector to a non-HDCP monitor. The HDCP requirements appear not to have been implimented in disks as yet so as not to destroy the market for early adopters which would require purchase of new big screens. AnyDVD/HD gets rid of this requirement all together.

    ok thanks m8

    where did you find the GFX support list for "cyberlink PowerDVD 7.x ultra"
    and what about 8800 GTX/GTS

    well it have to be a "HD support" list as normal DVD/XVID ect. works fine in 7.x with my 6800GT

    The list I posted was straight off the Cyberlink website I personally have no information on the 8800 GTX/GTS.

    ¿Why when I see a HD-DVD in DolbyTrueHD in the information I see MLP?
    It happens in all the HD-DVD's with DolbyTrueHD.

    Dolby TrueHD is a lossless compressor, I believe MLP stands for lossless.

    MLP == Meridian Lossless Packing. It's a lossless compression method for PCM audio.
