    Well if that means PowerDVD 8 is going to be cheaper, fine, but I hardly think thats going to be the case.

    There are other players available. Besides, it makes perfect sense to not include support for HD-DVD.

    not exactly...

    backward capabilities... and overall support is a major selling point.... at the VERY least.. the powerDVD 8 eddition should have a "HD-DVD" support download or eddition that provides full fuctionality with hd-dvds.....

    Thanks

    I don't believe so because they already paid for for the license on 7, and how how hard would it be the leave it in? Honestly they at least should have a separate pack. Heck, I might want watch some of my fire sale HD DVDs on my computer. At least be able to check the rips before I copy them over on Blu-Ray.

    I agree

    Opps should of check it, cold medicine was in full effect by then.

    Ha, cheaper that is great more likely they'll make it cost more. You know the old saying just because some thing is newer doesn't mean it's better.

    what other players are there besides the Japanese only version of WinDVD.

    PowerDVD is pretty much the only other one.

    This really pisses me off. PowerDVD 7.0 is soo damned slow as it when loading HD-DVDs and now they won't support it :mad:

    7.0.. don't have that..

    i've got 7.3 updated... and HD-DVD/BR-DVD and general DVD loading is very very quick even when it disables aero before loading things up fully... takes all of about 2 seconds top.

    My bad. I was under the impression that other software players supported HD-DVD, like WMP, VLC etc.

    Looks like you are out of luck. :(

    maybe it is 7.3 iunno. Either way it is much slower than DVDs. Plus the fact that you can't use the mouse kinda sucks.

    PowerDVD doesn't support using the mouse to click menues in HD-DVDs yet. You have to navigate the menues with a keyboard.
