A year ago I bought Power DVD 10 Ultra with hopes to play Blu-Ray media on my computer. I ran into the issue that, on a 6 core processor, Power DVD 10 would run the entire video playback on one of the twelve virtual cores and subsequently overheat that core causing artifacts in the playback. I first noticed this with the Star Wars Blu-Ray release. They came out with a patch that supposedly fixed this issue but it did nothing for me. I've ignored this problem for a year but now I'm considering buying Power DVD 12 ultra.
I just wanted to ask if anyone has had this same problem with Power DVD 12? Or if you could recommend a different software entirely because, personally, I don't really like Power DVD at all.
