Put a shortcut to the program in the 'Startup' folder of your Start menu. I'm sure there must be help file info, or a knowledge base article on Microsoft's web site if you have trouble figuring out how to do this.

If you put them in your startup they will both load... I am unsure if YxY will immediately grab control of the PowerDVD window (it does when you use auto insert but ??) and resize it to your desired default position / blanking...


Of course people that know will will know whats coming next :)... Command and control and any automation of HTPC's gets a whole lot more powerful once you have climbed the learning curve of Girder ( www.Girder.nl )...
