I switched from a key digital transcoder to an ATI dongle many months ago. I have been very please with the resolutions I get and prefer to use it over the transcoder. The one thing I can't stand anymore is the Macrovision restriction on DVDs. I am at a point that will probably switch back to the transcoder if I don't find a solution. The most irritating issue is that I have DVDregionfree installed on my HTPC and I still get this message half of the time. Then I end up ripping the DVD to the hard drive and watch it that way. There are movies I don't want to rip to the HD, I just want to be able to pop the disc in and watch the movie. Am I asking a lot or are things going to get better in the future?
