I intially posted this was a good thing this morning but I have to do a swift about turn. Its only a player not a decoder if you don't have any decoder filters (raviscent/powerdvd) installed it won't play. What a cheek! On the website its presented as this amazing all singing all dancing super new mpeg2 decoder, balls. It just uses the registered filters - like zoom, but not as good, not as flexible, not as honest in its intention and $39.95 to boot. Forget it.
