I've read some posts about it already, but I wanted to make a thread of this specific problem. It seems that Resident Evil: Extinction uses an inordinate amount of CPU power. Some blu-rays in general seem to, but this one is the first to max my CPU. Using PowerDVD 3516, it peaks at times, (Pentium Dual-Core OC'd to 2.25 GHz). With AnyDVD, it is better, I guess because of AACS removal, but still going well into the 70's (yet another reason to use AnyDVD unrelated to copy protection per se). So anyone has an idea why this is so? I don't think it's the AVC H.264 thing, since my nVidia 8600GTS should handle that easily, and no other discs (especially HD-DVDs) run the CPU this high. I am certain something else is running, probably BD-J, but is it supposed to waste that much resources? I don't think there's BD+ on this disc. I have not followed too closely the profile 1.1 and 1.2 or whatever stupid nonsense the blu-ray people is shoving down our throats now, so I don't know how it's gonna affect CPU usage. Boy did we get screwed by the blue people. Even with stuff that it's not required for the format, they bloat the discs. Advertisements, countless nag screens about any stupid little "warning" they can come up with, and not even allowing us to bypass them with one button push. No, we have to press the chapter skip button several times. And what the "#$&% is with the loading screens filling up little silhouettes, or rats dancing? HD-DVD certainly doesn't do that, I don't know what is it that the blu-rays need so much time to load. Oh well, yet another rant against the Blu, I know, but hardly ever anyone mentions the bloatware that it is. I think it's the most significantly annoying thing about it I can think of. Maybe more than BD+ (OK, I really didn't mean that). So anyone knows why RE:E takes so much CPU? And why particularly at chapter changes. Another weird thing is that when I pause the movie, the CPU is still going strong at 50%, and doesn't stop.
