There is no grain of salt, this is quite real. However, the fact that something is not configured right is entirely possible. So I agree, its possible not everyone is going to have a bad experience as described. But what I described happening cannot be dismissed.

My overall impression of the two solutions is that TMT still has problems with shortcut keys and it still refuses to play some discs. However, PowerDVD 8 works flawlessly in my setup. I even have it playing HD-DVD .iso files!
Pixelation issues is nothing to do with Vista. Vista is not what is sucking. As for the G45, I have not seen any other complaints like this. I wont discount the 4850 is superior, but the X4500HD with the G45 chipset setup is well into the robust side of the line for this. Furthermore, the fact that PowerDVD plays the video with perfect quality would imply without question both Vista and the G45 video are working excellent, and that TMT is what is struggling.
Please consider the facts before discounting a guys desscription of a problem. Talking smack about things (like Vista) for the sake of talking smack does not take a lot of IQ, but analyzing the actual problem may.
I have HD-DVD too, but I have not tried that. I will do that next. So far, its Blu Ray that is surfacing these issues.

Same here. Clean install, no 3rd party anything. I just installed Vista and the necessary components brand new before discovering the issues as described.
Glad to hear about your success though. It gives me hope that its just a config issue somewhere.
On that note... could it be that TMT is freaking out because PowereDVD was installed? And vice versa?
