Just to share with you folks, here's a great site on nzone about nVidia and HD-DVD/Blu-Ray playback on PC.

The "Built a PC" section contains lots of infos and a full list of supported video cards (nVidia of course) and hardware (drives, screens, etc.) that support HD w/HDCP:

Here's a summary:

Build a PC


For playing Blu-ray and HD DVD movies


To enjoy the ultimate HD DVD or Blu-ray movie experience on a PC, you'll need:


-A PCI Express graphics card with NVIDIA® GeForce® 7 Series HDCP-capable GPU, secure HDCP CryptoROM, and 256MB graphics memory

NVIDIA® ForceWare® driver that features PureVideo HD technology (version 93.71 or greater)

-An optical disc drive that supports Blu-ray and/or HD DVD movie playback

Blu-ray or HD DVD movie player software with PureVideo HD hardware acceleration of H.264, VC-1, and MPEG-2 high-definition content

-A dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM is recommended (see Checklist for a list of recommended CPUs)

Happy HTPC!



P.S. We all know that Intel license HDCP roms and keys and nVidia being a good "friend" of Intel, we should see more and more nVidia cards with HDCP-ready.


But now that ATI has being sold to AMD, do you think it will be more difficult for ATI to have HDPC-ready video cards?


Or maybe an HDCP emulator software will be able to output any HD-format full res on any decent video card too

The HDCP license is available at an established fee, anyone who pays the fee gets the crypto chip, just that simple. So ATI should have no problem getting HDCP on any card they wish.


As for an HDCP crack, well, we can hope.
