They are software for Windows to play Blurays on your computer (rather than a standalone Bluray player) and use a DBox system.
I am developing them, I am not related to DBox but I have a DBox system. sanderdvd helps in testing but honestly, beside us, I don't know if many people use it
Basically, MPC-HC plays the Bluray and the LAV Filters redirect the HD audio to the HDMI receiver and the (lossy) DTS/DD to the DBox controller
There are a few explanation and screenshots here: http://htpcfordbox.over-blog.com/
but the links point to old releases.
Normal Bluray players for computer like PowerDVD can't play HD and lossy audio at the same time, that's why I am doing that (actually MPC-HC and LAV Filters are free softwares and I adapt them).
