So, I have a simple question, but I've not been able to answer it by searching so here goes.. I use AnyDVD and DVD clone, so I'm plenty comfortable in how to backup and play my DVD's in Vista Media centre. My problem is that I have a big old CRT projector that has no digital input (ie, no HDCP even though my graphics card does) So, I know with AnyDVD-HD and PDVD (and either a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD drive of course) I could playback from harddrive, but I don't have the amount of hard drive space to contemplate 25Gb backups... But.. would I be able simply to play a physical high definition disc from the drive, and output in 720p or 1080p via the VGA output ? Or do you have to rip the files first in order to do anything ?
