    :disagree:
    I don't think I would be assuming that. But you may be right, I just don't remember reading this in any changelogs.

    I originally purchased Nero 7 Ultra, but since the last update, it became Nero 7 Ultra Enhanced. So, if you have the latest version of Nero 7 Ultra, it's Nero 7 Ultra Enhanced.

    Yes, Nero Ultra 7 == Nero Ultra 7 Enhanced. I can't remember when they did it but it reminds me of when they used the Reloaded name for the product.

    My understanding is that Nero Burning ROM can handle HD-DVD and BR but Nero ShowTime cannot.

    I'm purely speculating but I don't think they have to purchase a license to author unprotected HD-DVD or BR content using their burning software but they most definitely would have to purchase a license from the AACS LA to view protected content, no? They are saving money by not purchasing a license which makes me wonder if they're waiting to see which horse wins the race. Or possibly they're just taking longer to release a player that works but then again... do WinDVD and PowerDVD really work on HD content, yet? :p

    Well this is the e-mail response from them on the subject:

    So it looks as if they are working HD DVD and BD playback but they are not killing themselves in the process.

    I almost thought this was it for a second but no,….its not:

    Nero Showtime

    I think that Nero Showtime is just a repackaged version of PowerDVD. An HD version of Nero Showtime probably won't be available until sales of PowerDVD Ultra begin to drop off and more people have PCs capable of playing HD titles.

    If Nero Showtime is just a repackaged version of PowerDVD which licenses Cyberlink software, using the "Microsoft Windows XP Decoder Checkup Utility" should show it's link to Cyberlink software.

    If I recall correctly the ATI decoder is really a licensed Cyberlink decoder and the "Microsoft Windows XP Decoder Checkup Utility" recognizes it as such. Installation of both Cyberlink PowerDVD and the ATI decoder shows a double entry of the Cyberlink decoder.

    On my test system the latest installed Cyberlink decoder is reported as being WMP10 and MCE compliant. Whereas the Nero 7.7.5.1 install has a reported “Nero Video Decoder 2.2.23.9” which is not WMP10 compliant but is MCE compliant and a “Nero DVD Decoder (nevideo)” 2.2.23.9” which isn’t WMP10 or MCE compliant.

    Personally, I think Nero is off on their own little tangent with respect to their software or at the very least they don’t use the Cyberlink decoder. They also don’t have HD DVD or BD playback software capabilities yet, which is most unfortunate,....:(
