So I have the 360 drive. I use sly soft anydvd HD, right click the tray icon and tell it to rip the disc to my HDD. I then use powerdvd ultra 7.3 to open the directory where the movie was ripped to. Is it that simple? Can someone give me configuration tips to get the best out of my movie watching experience? How can you tell what resolution the video is at with PowerDVD? it seems you can stretch the window to all sorts of values or hit fullscreen? What if I just want 1080P exactly and no more or less? How can I tell I'm even getting a 1080P signal right now and not something less or limited? I have an X-Fi platinum with Logi Z5500's. Whats the best sound experience I can get from HDDVD and how would I configure it in PowerDVD? there are a few different options? For example there is no 5.1 option, and various other audio options that I'm not sure what they do. I have 3 cable analog from my x-fi to speakers currently, but have the front bay expansion and optical cabling if needed. Can I enable HW acceleration? Currently have an ATI X1900XTX, but can't seem to get it enabled. I also have a Dell 3007 and apparently in the past either with an old version of PowerDVD or old video drivers maybe it wasnt possible to watch anything without distortion with the desktop set to 2560x1600. That seems to have gone away. There might be other things good for me to know... any tips are appreciated! Thanks.
