    I can't find a link for this release PowerDVD 15 is not indicating that version 16 is available. Can you provide a link to site which mentions the price. Thanks for the heads up.

    So no hope for AACS 2.0 being cracked..

    I'm pretty sure in an earlier post someone from Slysoft said that that wasn't how they cracked it on their side as that loophole was closed up pretty quickly.

    Hopefully they'll add in playback for UHD discs in an update

    According to Wikipedia, the last 3 versions had release dates from early to mid April.
    So you may have a week or 3 to wait before being able to purchase.

    Those updates were just to fix new release bugs, not roll out a major update like UHD-Blu-ray support.
    Don't get me wrong, I would like nothing better for Cyberlink to support UHD-Blu-ray, but with no real official readers out there, if they were to release a version now, I think it would be a disaster.
    People would be scrambling to find a reader _ the forums would be filled with questions about what reader should I buy ? Plus the fact that the only reader that can appear to see the files has to have a service code of N50, but doesn't give that info on venders sites, is just ridiculous. (I don't even think it's printed on the box)
    Why did LG do this, or was it just an accident, why didn't LG change the model number like they did over in Europe when the new service code was applied ?

    I'll drop another line to Cyberlinks' support page and report back here if I have any real info about it.

    A trial download of PowerDVD 16.0.1510.60 is available here (163 MB). You can use PowerDVD 16 offline but it requires that you connect to the internet at least once every 30 days to ensure your subscription is still active (in case you have one).

    Added user's guide to first post so you can get more information without installing the trial. ;)

    I still use PVDVD 10 Ultra, I am on SS so I am not going to upgrade, but I have tried the other in trials and I like my V10 the best.

    No* UHD-BD support:
    I think this isn't a smart move at all, but the strange thing is PowerDVD Main Website, doesn't indicate there is or was a New version at the begin with.
    Maybe they are going to change it in the Final product, I Hope! ;)

    But to be fair there is still no UHD Player or UHD Burner for the PC, so maybe they wait on that and when it finally can be bought.
    Then maybe they are going to make this in 17. ;)

    You can use PowerDVD 16 offline but it requires that you connect to the internet at least once every 30 days to ensure your subscription is still active (in case you have one).
    This isn't a smart move at all, many people like still things offline, just like me.
    Hopefully they are going to change this. ;)

    The player or the reader, which should come first.
    They're still pondering over the chicken and the egg...

    My guess is that both will be out there pretty much at the same time.
    You'll find UHD readers bundled together with a Cyberlink product that doesn't really work that well and you will be forced to upgrade to a working version, even if the format is new.

    Didn't know there was a Reader already. ;)
    Find a Burner aswel Pioneer BDR-206MBK, but it isn't Cheap $200 :( & LG WH14NS40 $49.99. ;)
    Hopefully there also will be a BDXL External Burner. ;)

    From posts over at videohelp etc the bh16/wh16ns40 can't process uhd, but the newer revision ns50 can.

    Are you sure the BDR-206MBK reads UHD discs? That drive is from 2011 so I doubt it will. Just because a BDR drive reads BDXL doesn't mean it can read UHD discs. I've tested the current desktop range from Pioneer (BDR-209EBK & S09XLT) as well as the external BDR-XD05T, all of which support BDXL, but don't recognize a UHD movie disc. So far the only drive I've found to see the contents of a UHD disc is the LG BH16NS55.
    I did ask Pioneer about it and they replied

    Onto the Mainpage they say they can use UHD Discs, but I'm definally not sure because I don't bought any yet.
    Also I will wait when I know the Movies can be Back-Upped with AnyDVD, otherwise it doesn't have a use here I think. ;)
    Also what I definally don't like if I want to watch a Movie I need Internet to watch. :(
    So hopefully AnyDVD makes something to prevent this also into the Future for UHD Disks and if possible also for PowerDVD 30 Days Re-Check. ;)
