    Hi

    I just installed a DVD player into my PC and the first DVD I tried was Monty Python Holy Grail, PowerDVD says...

    "This copy protected disc cannot be played when the TV Out port is being utilized."

    Now, at the moment i dont use TV-Out on the Gfx card but dont see any way of disabling it. Is there a work around for this that anybody knows about?

    I just want to view it on my monitor.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Hi

    I don't have dual monitor support on this gfx card. its the old GeForce II card that has TV out.

    Almost all my DVD's wont play because of the problem now :(

    I just want to watch them on my monitor, I don't even have a TV attached to the PC yet.

    This is really frustrating.
