we would like to inform you, that a new version of AnyDVD has been released. Here the list of fixes and improvements:

7.1.6.0 2013 03 05
- New: Option to disable Cinavia detection when using AnyDVD with ArcSoft
TMT 5.3, TMT 6.0 or PowerDVD 12

- New: Rip to image will create sparse files to reduce the size of
required disc space and faster image creation
- New (Blu-ray): Support for new discs
- New (DVD): Support for new discs
- Fix (DVD): Removing annoyances could make some discs unplayable
- Some minor fixes and improvements

Just an fyi since several people have posted this. Cinavia has not been removed by AnyDVD, it is still present. Instead it appears that AnyDVD blocks the software players on an HTPC from detecting Cinavia (so a work around)

That's what it says.. "Disable Cinavia detection..."

Which at the moment for PC playback at least, is as good as removing Cinavia.

Currently with AnyDVD HD running no player on a PC can detect Cinavia, so its a pretty great feature IMO.

Yes, just pointing out the obvious as I have seen some people post (who are not HTPC people and have no idea what TMT, etc.. is) that they thought Cinavia was actually being removed (so this would work for all media players, not just HTPCs running AnyDVD in the background)

Cheers,

Okay. I thought so. Now it has been stated a few times so I hope that people will understand that this does not remove Cinavia from the file nor does it alter the ability of players other than HTPC's to playback without the watermark causing issues, er preventing piracy.

Yeah, I think some people just see "Disable Cinavia" and stop right there, its gone right!!! We were discussing in another thread, it just really shows that all you can hope for are Cinavia workarounds (so basically trick the player), there is no reason to believe Cinavia itself will be removed at any point soon.

As long as its effects are gone, I do not care if it is actually removed or not.

I wonder if any pressure will be put on the software developers to release patches to fix the AnyDVD disable, or if they can just plead ignorance that any such workaround exists (which would obviously be beneficial to them from a sales standpoint)

It's possible, we'll just have to wait and see. It could also be done disc side, aside from player. We don't know how many signals they have in the bank to use. They could just start including a new one on discs from now on that the player's are already configured to pick up on. Or do that and have the players issue an update.

Just in case they disable it I'm keeping both my pre-cinavia version of TMT5 installed and the new TMT6. In any case, my pre-cinavia TMT5 will continue to do the job for my movie-only blu-ray ISOs if they clamp down on AnyDVD's workaround.
