BR Playback Issues with new LG BR combo drive!! Please help!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys

Just finished putting my new LG BR combp drive in my HTPC and installed PowerDVD OEM off the supplied CD.

Put in "Prince Caspian (BR)" in and launched PDVDv7.3....it scans the disk but then craps out with a "Fail to enable HDCP playback, Error Code=0110".

I ran the PDVD advisor tool and it DOES DETECT my 720p Marantz projector (hdmi) as a HDCP device so I'm not sure why the software fails to see my projector as hdcp certified. I use a Ps3 on HDMI as well and I have no issues playing BR content off the PS3. My projector is also HDMI 1.2 so it shouldn't be a problem.

I'm using a Gigabyte 780G based mobo with onboard Rad3200 GPU with a AMD 4850eCPU.

Any ideas? This is really discouraging as I was hoping to perfect BR playback on my HTPC so I could sell my PS3 (doesn't really use it that much for gaming but it makes a great BR player).

Here's what I've done so far.....PowerDVD prompted me for a patch so I downloaded and ran that successfully. Installed Arcsoft's TMT and that actually plays the movie BUT gives me a black screen but I can hear the audio fine.

Then I downloaded AnyDVDHD (trial version) and its running in the system tray but even with that, I can't seem to bypass the HDCP protection which doesn't make sense as my projector (off hdmi) is hdmi 1.2

If I can't get BR to run properly on my HTPC, I'm gonna return this drive and stick to my PS3 for BR playback.

Appreciated.

Okay....found the solution...appeared I didm't reboot my PC after I installed AnyDVD.....

I rebooted the PC and now with AnyDVD running in the background, the movie plays just fine.

But the full version of AnyDVD costs another $80!!!!! I'm pretty bummed that PC BR drives+software has been out for more than a year now but it seems like its a hit-n-miss when it comes BR playback.

I'm trying to make a ISO via AnyDVD right now so if that works fine afterwards, then I will dish out another $80 for AnyDVD as at least with this software, it works like its intended to while doing 'other' great things at the same time.

God bless SlySoft.

Did you update your copy of PowerDVD OEM with the latest version?

Correct - I also just got one of these (GGC-H20L), and mine came with PDVD8. And, for $80 you can pick up an nVidial 9600GT that is HDCP capable, and not worry about AnyDVD! Also, the 9600GT you can run SPDIF to it and it will provide digital audio out the DVI connector, then use a DVI-HDMI cable and you are set.

Thanks Mike

But the whole point of me going with the 780 based mobo was BR playback in the first place...even on the box, it has a big sticker saying 1080p/HDCP certified.

I, personally, think, its PowerDVD that's an issue but since I've got AnyDVD making it work fine, I'm good for now. And the ability to rip the movies to ISO on my HDD via AnyDVDHD is a huge plus.

I would suggest paying for AnyDVDHD because Slysoft is switching to a subscription model next year. Buying now will ensure you get lifetime updates before the subscription model kicks in. People who already purchased won't have to worry about it as their licenses will be grandfathered with lifetime updates.
