    does it just fail to play when it gets to the film, or not at all? eg no menu's etc.

    I would say the issue is with PowerDVD. Perhaps it is the same thing like with the spiderman movies theyy don't play either.
    I contacted the support of Cyberlink and they say wait for the next update...

    Yes, yes it is. :) Just got my copy from Amazon last night and watched it on my 50" LCoS tv. Truly impressive. I took the kids to see it in our new all digital theater with stadium seating this summer and they loved it. Looks just as good on HD DVD.

    As for your playback problem, this is another one with web enabled content, SOOO, try the following:

    1) Close PowerDVD
    2) Disable the network connection
    3) Reopen PowerDVD

    Give that a try and see if that works for you. No guarantees.

    when you started to watch transformers and and cyberlink started did it ask you to web enable or something? mine got stuck at that point and i just cancelled and the movie started....
    im just curious???

    I didn't watch it on PowerDVD, but, that's an issue I've seen before where the web content hangs in PowerDVD. Disabling the network sometimes gets past that problem and lets you to continue to the movie.

    I can't find network connection?

    I'm new at this anydvd/cyberlink thing. So, I have no idea what network connection I should turn off? Is it in the cyberlink? Can you tell me the exact location of the network connection that I should turn off/disable? Thank's

    I did disabled the Local Area Connection on my computer. It Still not working? Did I miss something else? The only thing left is my dial up connection. Should I delete as well?

    So it is not possible to even watch transformers using the xbox 360 drive and my computer? I disable network, shut down anydvd and still can not get movie to even start using powerdvd.

    Yes it is, i have the xbox360 to my htpc that i built and it works, your dial up connection or local area connection has to be disabled (dont delete it) then also disable the any hddvd too,then start your powerdvd.
    But since you disabled any hddvd you must have an hdcp compliant video card and an compliant plasma or lcd.so maybe your video card or monitor isnt hdpc compliant???
    i hope this will help you alittle

    Does your videocard and plasma/lcd support hdcp???Thats very important now whe you just wanna watch the movie with any hddvd turned off. and as said in previous posts turn off your network connection.Normally when any hdvd is working and can decode the movies you dont need to have hdcp videocard or hdcp lcd/plasma to view becuse any hddvd takes care of that( if i understand it right)
    also make sure you have the latest patch for cyberlink powerdvd.
    Im using and dvi to hdmi cable from my 7900gtx video card to my 50"plasma with the xbox360 hddvd player and it works great with help from people here.
    i hope this will you help you guys alittle
