I bought myself an LCD TV for my bedroom which is Hi Def capable apparently. Fair enough, set it up via the component connections to my HTPC and sure enough, I got nvidia pop up menu's asking all the right questions about setting up my display for Hi Def. So far, so good. I don't have any Hi Def material but thought I'd try a DVD to see what, if any, difference there was. What I got was a message saying that either my DVD was being used by another application (I hadn't opened it up in any other application before I opened MCE) or that it was copyright protected and thus, up yours matey, you're not watching this DVD via the component connections (or you're not watching the DVD you bought legally, on the equipment you built legitamately and that works in all other respects). Has anyone any ideas? If this is the way forward then you can poke MCE quite frankly. Hopefully, I'm doing something wrong but if you can't watch a SD DVD in hi def then it should say so. If it's to do with this HDMI handshake malarkey then clearly until video cards come so equipped, are we wasting our money on hi end graphics cards? Miffed of Southampton, or just misguided? Jon.
