    Using WinME and TheaterTek 1.2 inserting a DVD used to open TheaterTek and start the movie.

    I did a full clean and re-build for TheaterTek 1.5 and it doesn't work any more.

    As before, I run RegionKiller and DVDautoRefresh.

    DVDautoRefesh notices the disc insert and sets resolution correctly as before, just now TheaterTek doesn't start. I think it does sometimes, say one time in 10, but I couldn't be sure.

    Any help appreciated.
    regards,
    Rob.

    Hi Rob,
    Have you tried disabling region killer? worth a try.... & upgrade to the latest killer.
    Do you use Girder....if yes try upgrading that as well sounds like the set-up has got it's knickers in a twist.
    You could also upgrade to a decent OS:devil:
    Cheers
    Tim

    Thanks Tim!

    Disable region killer sounds like a smart test. I'm pondering if I'll re-try XP again, I still have an unregistered Home copy from the last time I tried it, but DX9 and Cat2.5 and a few TT revisions have been released since.

    Any other ideas?
    Rob.
