TMT plays back rip BD's from folders just fine, as well as HD-DVDs.
And it doesn't have a virus, your virus program is initiating a false-positive. Try uninstalling, reboot, delete anything Arcsoft related (even in the registry), reboot, turn OFF your virus protection, re-install TMT, reboot. Your virus protection may be blocking some installation files. Ever think of that?
I have no desire to become a 'get TMT to work' guru so no, I did not read hundreds of pages of this thread. I posted my experience with TMT and also provided the configurations I used and the exact results I got. Might be useful info to someone who has similar rigs. Those are "just the facts, maam." If that offends a TMT fanboy, so be it.
In my opinion, going thru the proceedure you suggest should not be needed. There is obviously a virus signature in TMT. It is their choice to blame the AV company instead of finding and changing the signature in their own software. Turning off anti virus (as their tech support suggested) in order to play a movie is not an option as far as I am concerned, especially if the player is using the internet. What then protects the player form getting infected?
That's just an insane suggestion, as far as I am concerned.
Besides, it is not a question of TMT not running, it is a question of it not playing HD-DVD disks, or Bluray from a folder or even just HD mpgs,while it IS running. Other players do this on the exact same computers, so I don't agree that I should have to make a bunch of changes to the configs (especially to the registy as you suggest) in order to accommodate the shortcomings of a single piece of software.
TMT plays DVD off the hard drive just fine, but the choice remains grayed out on Blue ray folders, so it won't even try to play them.
The computer I use for theater has the 8600GT (HDCP compliant) in it and it currently plays all of my recorded HD .mpgs fine, also plays HD .trp, regular DVDs and Bluray from the hard drive fine. It just stutters playing HD-DVD from a disk so I thought I'd go with TMT since is supposedly makes best use of Purevideo and playes HD-DVD off the hard drive. I never even got to the 'off the hard drive' part on this computer because TMT stops playing an HD_DVD disk after 15 seconds or so and reports 'no HDCP' on a card which IS compliant. During the 15 seconds it does play, it seems to use less CPU than Nero, but it refuses to continue, so what's the use? Neither PowerDVD nor Nero Showtime players do this, so I don't think the problem is with the hardware. Arcsoft tech support says reinstall the latest Nvidia drivers. Give me a break . . . I am already using the latest drivers and everything else on the computer works . . including the other players.
I don't do warez and I just bought a legit TMT so I have the only the latest version and no ability to roll back to a previous version, and Arcsoft blames everything except their own software, so I'm dead in the water.
If that kind of situation works for some, that's fine. I'm not going to reconfigure my computers or run without AV or jump thru any other hoops just to use a player. I requested a refund in accordance with their publiched policy . I will post back the results of that request.
