I'll believe it when I see it in action.

After reading the specs, it seems Forceware is not much different than ATI MMC (for AIW). Let's hope nVidia SW product is better than ATI's quality....

They are just combining their unified driver which is already available with some extra's. "record live TV, watch DVDs, burn a TV show to recordable media, listen to music, and even stream content to other clients"


Nothing you can't already do, and they'll probably make it so you can't run those extras unless you have an nvidia product.

Actually it includes all of the previous NVDVD 3.0 enhancements I talked about in other threads, that is the point that I figured most people in this particular forum would care about. But its not just "extras', they include personal firewalls, NVDVD, PVR, and such.


As for it only running on an Nvidia product, NVDVD has always supported other platforms, and I do not see that changing. In fact I would expect just the opposite, that they continue to enhance the software products for all hardware platforms. Especially given the recent comments by the CEO that NVIDIA isn't just a video card company anymore.

I've been pretty happy with NVDVD (including on some ATI hardware), but especially on the 5600 ultra; I'll have to give this a close look, too.


Transport stream playback would also be a plus; I haven't had any significant problems using NVDVD in file mode for VOB on HD playback.


Will NVDVD 3 only be available in this bundle, or as a stand alone product also?

Its interesting to see this in their speclist:


* Complete ffdshow support.

* Complete Elecard Demux support

* Complete ReClock support


Clearly, these guys are paying attention to the requests from this forum.

I'm wondering what TV tuners, etc; they are going to support. Would be nice to know.

I know that the NVIDIA Personal Cinema is supported for TV capture cards, but am not sure about any others right now.

In the past NVIDIA has been very good about upgrades. I don't know for sure if its going to be free or cheaper or just have to buy the whole thing. Hopefully its free, or at least inexpensive to upgrade. I know that doesn't really answer the question, just have to wait and see.
