HD-DVD Playback Software? - Page 2

post #31 of 44
Does TotalMedia Theatre 3 still support HD DVD? Or should I purchase one of the earlier versions?
post #32 of 44
TMT3 does support HD-DVD playback, but there is currently a bug that causes audio dropouts on some HD-DVDs. I assume Arcsoft will fix it, but if you want to be sure you should probably wait a little. Generally there aren't that many big advantages over TMT2, but it will probably be better supported in the future, so I would recommend to get TMT3.

Thanks. Kinda need the software now so I picked up a copy of TMT2 for $70. I'll just get TMT3 later down the line.

Sorry for the thread resurrection, but I'm curious as to what is now considered the best way to playback HD-DVD's from a PC?

The prices on remaining HD-DVD stock is simply too good to pass up.

I think Total Media Theater 3 is the only current program that can play HD DVDs.

Although I have bought all versions of TMT including the latest TMT5, I still find the 3 years old PowerDVD 7.3 that came with my PC works the best. It never miss a beat teaming up with Reclock, but it needs AnydvdHD or it will ask you to update everytime. TMT stutter randomly with HDDVD and TMT5 is no better.

TMT5? I bought TMT3 earlier in the year and TMT4 just came out. Figures that a week after I buy the 3D Plug In, the new version comes out. Do they still update the encryption key thingie for older software versions?

I've seen a tons of HD & BD discs under TMT3 without stuttering and crashing problems.I've tried the newest TMT5 a couple of weeks ago,but It seems to me extremely slow.So I went back to my old trustworthy TMT3.

Arcsoft just released TMT5 last month and totally skip TMT4. They are the best in new disc support as they still update TMT2 to cover Avatar not long ago. Don't know about their policy but so far all their updates are for the whole program and not encryption key alone. My guess is that they are already done with TMT2 and they will keep TMT3 support but much less until the next generation of TMT is out.

Power DVD 7 was the last HD-DVD compatible software from Cyberlink.

I had some compatiblity problem (audio lag) with my HDDVDs under PDVD7.

Totalmedia is still compatible with this defunc format so I think this software is a better choice for watching HDDVDs.

Cyberlink have removed HD DVD playback from PowerDVD 8. 9 11 HeroesI have both an HD and a BR drive and want to play both formats.

I recently tested TMT 5 on my computer and it did play HD DVD's just fine. If you want to play them on a PC I think this may be the only choice.

I am sure that there are many free programs,but most free one has its own disadvantages,such as limit the using time,and some ads for you,but you can have a try from search google!
