    Have just upgraded to the big 7.0 and despite all the claims, am unable to get .ts files (in native stream or even Mpeg2) even playing, let alone seeking, on this blasted software.

    I also downloaded the NVidia beta codec today, so am unable to determine which is at fault - any clues gang? :lease:

    WinDVD7 does not play TS files on my system. It does play Mpeg, but the CPU utilisation is much higher than PowerDVD.

    The specs page on their website states it will play (and indeed seek) transport stream files, so if it doesn't I'll be looking for my money back.

    Indeed I have tried both native ts and mpeg2s converted with HDTV2MPEG2 and while the converted MPEG2's load initially, as soon as they start playing they crash the program with an error message mentioning 'gpiproxy.dll'

    Not impressed really :mad:

    I think PowerDVD is much stronger product for TS and MPG HD stuff. Their decoder is so efficient that it work very well even on my 1GHz laptop.

    I can't get either of these programs to load or play a .ts file...
