First of all... I bought AnyDVD HD because I thought I needed it, but... I have an old tv set with 1080i components input. I'm building an HTPC box for it. I thought that HDCP would not allow me to play both HD disk formats. But... it appear that right now all HD disks allow playback over analog outputs? It's only with digital outputs that the HDCP chain is enforced up to the screen? Well.. as of now PowerDVD Advisor says my system is all green with my analog monitor... And I actually can play full res HD-DVDs without AnyDVD HD running (with no downscaling). I expect it will be the same when I hook up the component cable to my TV as it is analog too. So, I guess my copy of AnyDVD HD will only be required if I wanna rip the disks to hard disk for later play? Or am I missing something here? Thanks for any clarification.
