Is AnyDVD able to detect and remove Cinavia watermark?

    I had AnyDVD and Clone BD back when the company was known as SlySoft. I had the lifetime membership. When the company changed to Redfox I have not yet got the lifetime membership partly because when I started noticing when doing a full copy clone of a DVD I was getting Cinavia error messages. I am curious if there has been any improvements to this. Has there been a method to detect if the disc has Cinavia and if so can it remove it or is there a workaround for it? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

    AnyDVD used with CloneBD can remove cinavia for blu ray discs only. You cannot remove it for DVD's. Just use a DVD player to watch the cinavia infected DVD, only blu ray players will detect it. DVD players aren't required to.

    Nothing has changed in relation to Cinavia and a DVD between Slysoft and Redfox. Play your DVD on a DVD player and you'll never see a Cinavia message. Play your DVD on a Bluray player, then it needed to have been made prior to February 2012.

    Is there anything in the pipeline for Cinavia removal yet?
    Dvd fab 10 has it already and has a free trail as well for 30 days. I just don't want to
    have 2 different programs at the same time. I would wait for any dvd upgrade.
    Keep up the good work

    As has been mentioned, AnyDVD with CloneBD will remove Cinavia for Bluray. There has been no word on Cinavia removal on DVD, but there is no need to remove Cinavia on DVD as DVD players don't look for it.

    If Cinavia removal were to be added for DVD then I would expect it do be done similarly to how CloneBD deals with Cinavia on Blu-ray. This would require Elaborate Bytes to make changes to CloneDVD. I have no idea what Elaborate Bytes' plans are but I have not been expecting any change.

    AFAIK there are no non-Blu-ray players - IOW DVD players - that support Cinavia. I could be wrong but I've yet to hear of any. What you listed is a DVD/CD player that also upconverts to HD. No Blu-ray support. As such there is no requirement for licensing from the BDA or AACS LA. That being the case there is zero requirement for Cinavia enforcement.

    I have three of these (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-dvd-player-with-hd-upconversion-black/4790739.p?skuId=4790739), and none of them care about Cinavia. The Philips should be the same. I know of no DVD player that looks for Cinavia.
