Within the last five years, I mean. The thing about this DVD/Blu playback software for PCs is that they're constantly releasing patches, but what I don't like is that they're always plugging their latest version for you to buy. This implies to me that at some point the version of the software you bought (for me, v11) will soon stop working and you HAVE to buy the latest version. Has this happened to anyone? I already have a standalone Blu-ray player and I was thinking of getting another one, but I already have the PC as the second Blu-ray player - so is it not worth it simply to have the PC as the second? The PC after all does have the 1080p screen. But has PowerDVD ever failed on you after a few years?
