Something must be screwed with the drivers/setup, the 8600GT has much better scaling and deinterlacing than the 7xxx series.

I am not sure if scaling is needed if I am playing back a HD-DVD and de-interlacing is not needed at all, not for DVDs nor for HD-DVDs.

Ahh, in that case it doesn't matter what card you use. It's just decoding and displaying, nothing more. All cards would then look the same, assuming they're working properly.
Personally I wouldn't want to sharpen it beyond that, since the director has chosen a certain level of sharpness already. PurevideoHD won't (shouldn't!) do anything to pic quality, all it's doing is helping the computer with the decoding work.

There still isn't any PureVideo HD decoding for XP - all the best features of your card (which I also have an 8600GT and XP) is for Vista

Cyberlink currently still does not accelerate H.264 as far as I know. I alos believe that inorder to accelerate H.264 you have to change out the container to an avi. At that point PowerDVD will accelerate the video. That is alot of work though.

I found my 8600GT to be a big step up from my 7900GS. Unfortunately I am currently back to the 7900GS since the 8600GT didn't actually have HDCP despite claims to the contrary. I have a new 8600GT on the way though.

I don't know about XP, but with Vista sharping and noise reduction work fine with the 8600gts card. I use both at times, even with blu-ray and HD-dvd. It just depends on the movie and yes its with a projector. Its a personal taste thing but for me it does improves the picture. Yes even at 1080p/24.
Right now I'm using a 120 inch Diag. but I have a friend using the same on a 160" Diag. with the H81-LV.

As it does not work under XP: Can you explain to us, how it is working under vista ? Screenshots ?

That's not true. There are several working betas that enable the acceleration under XP.
