Any solutions for this movie as far as PC playback goes?
Really a question for the HTPC forum
. There are numerous threads on this over there.
The short answer is that I have tried several of these discs with PowerDVDUltra - it prompts you to do an update which does not help and breaks anamorphic stretch with YXY! There is a home brew fix for the stretch issue (see the HTPC area).
I do not have Day After Tomorrow or Silver Surfer but was able to play Transformers HD-DVD (another problem movie) with PDVD by unplugging the network connection so it can't phone home.
Also PDVD will not play Blu-Ray Surf's Up but the Japanese demo of ArcSoft's player will. I think that is the same BD+ problem as SS and DAT have. ArcSoft is supposed to release the English version of their player
by the end of this month.
