They did have a demo at CES, running WM9 at CIF resolution. Not very impressive. The WM9 function is mainly for recording onto CD. I'm not sure if it will play a DVD with WM9 content if that's what you are interested in. As far as I know, it is not a released product yet.
Originally posted by hgodwin The player is not available yet. It will be able to play 720p WM9 when it becomes available in a few months, according to a msft manager who posts in HTPC threads.
I posted this there over a week ago hoping that he would see it. I later gave up and posted it here. I am looking for a WM9 720P player as I don't want the headache of a htpc for wm9 which is much too resource intensive than what I have and upgrade. The best that my 'puter can do is 2.06ghz after upgrade and that probably won't get smooth wm9.
