    InterVideo have announced a, commercial, add-on for WinDVD 5 that will allow playback of HD content encoded in WMV:

    Of note:
    Is there is list of such upcoming products yet? Obviously there was the Terminator 2 (region protection) disaster but maybe some of these HD releases won't include this.

    Cheers for that link! Very useful. I'm going to ensure my next PC has HDMI out so I can use it as an intrim HD-DVD player until the dust settles and their is somekind of HD standard (i.e. WMV, MP4 etc).

    News like this a great promotion of the use of PC in home A/V chain. Get a new player capability for $19.95.

    How much it would cost people with a high-end DVD players to upgrade them to play high-definition content?

    Buy a new player maybe...

    "I'm going to ensure my next PC has HDMI out so I can use it as an intrim HD-DVD player until the dust settles and their is somekind of HD standard (i.e. WMV, MP4 etc)."

    What you need to make sure is that a display device you will buy next does have standard VGA input. I would personally boycot any products with HDMI or similar that take away my fair use rights.
