On my Radeon system, Cineplayer 4 looks best.


On my GeForce2ultra system, PowerDVD4-XP looks

best.


I was hoping that PowerDVD4 would be best all

around (since it seems most stable, has the

best user interface, and plays the most disks),

but unfortunately Cineplayer4 PQ still looks

better on my Radeon system.


PowerDVD4 definately closed the gap a bit so

that GeForce2/3 cards are getting closer to

Radeon type quality now.


I haven't had a chance to try the TheaterTek

player so I cannot comment on how well it

would compare.

I'm glad you can get Cineplayer 4.0 to work for you.


Maybe it only works on those sick resolutions that you use.:)


I hear that Power DVD XP has a great picture on a Radeon, but if you turn Hardware option off it looks alot worse.


Are you running under Windows XP or 2000?

Actually under Win98SE in both cases.

Hardware acceleration looks worse in

all cases so I use software decoding

only.


I have come to the conclusions that hardware

accleration only works well at lower resolutions

and perhaps even only on systems where

Powerstrip is used to find "sweet spot"

resolutions.
