Nero Showtime stops with AnyDVD running

    Does anyone know if the latest Nero Showtime detects AnyDVD and stops?

    The reason I ask is I have 2 HD-DVD disks that exhibit this behaviour. My system has 2 monitors attached, a Dell 30" HDCP compliant via DVI and a Dell 20" not HDCP and connected via VGA.

    eg. I got one this morning "Appleseed Ex-Machina" and it behaves like this...

    1) Open Showtime on 20". Run the HDDVD. Screen opens up and after a few seconds shrinks back down. Nothing.

    2) Repeat (1) but with AnyDVD disabled. Showtime opens up and says "video output does not allow playback" because of HDCP I guess.

    3) Repeat (2) but with Showtime on the 30" screen. Plays back but after saying "resolution was reduced" for some reason.

    4) Repeat (3) but with AnyDVD enabled. Get the same as (1), no playback.

    Any ideas?
