    Hi guys just had a look over the weekend at all the demos around of hi-def films and stuff and was totally blown away by the picture on my ae700 pj just through a cheap 10m vga lead!, so does anyone know where they can be purchased ,and also will they just play in my normal pc dvd drive, and finally i think i read somewhere you have to get them authorised online to view them? is this correct?. cheers for any help. Mike

    Nowt "official" will be available until the Autumn time (approx street date - at the earliest) when we'll start to see HD-DVD stuff. Your DVD drive will not be able to play that material - a new drive will be required.

    You can get WMV-HD stuff right now which will play from your DVD drive but a) you'll need a fast enough processor to play the 1080 stuff (P4- 2.8) and some of the films have online DRM verification. There are workarounds to this server registration - although I haven't yet tried it. There are German WMV-HD releases which I don't know too much about (DRM etc) - others on these boards have bought them so they'll be able to provide a greater insight.
