    Got a strange (and rather annoying problem) with DVD playback on my HCPC... playback of both NTSC and PAL films works fine, however I seem to get frame drops when playing menus and any bonus material - shows as a slight 'jerk' every second.

    I've never seen this on previous installs so I'm a bit at a loss where to start. It would be worse if the main film suffered in the same way, so I suppose it could be worse!

    Any ideas?

    (Running PowerDVD XP4 on an ATHLON1600, ATI 8500DV and latest catalyst drivers/powerstrip feeding a Sony 12HT 1366x768@56)

    Also, do you guys that run DVD Region Killer ever get the occasional standard windows dialogue to select region? Seems to me DVD Region Killer is not 100% proof on automatic mode?

    Thanks

    Mark,

    Can't comment on the stutter issue, but I've been running regionkiller for months now, never a popup, plays everything I've thrown at it - Ri,2,3,4 with no problems. (Dvd drive flashed region free thanks to stuff and guidance from Kramer quite some time ago !).


    All the best,

    Sean G.
