    I have the WMVHD movies off the WMVHD web site, and I have a demo sent to me from Pioneer, all are 720p. I have copied them to a DVD-R, and also a DVD+R and tried them in multiple Denon DVD players such as the A1XV, 3910 and 2910. The DVD players load the disc so I can see the directories, but when I come to play them they will not play. I can hear the disc spin up faster and faster, then slows down and speeds up again, but no video will play.

    Any help appreciated.

    I have tried them on two panels, Pioneer PRO-920HD and Fujitsu P42HHA40 via HDMI.

    I dont think they work at all mate, i thought wmv hd was only ment to be played off pc due to the power needed to play it. I doubt a standard dvd player would be able to play them.

    I have The Matrix and a Starwars film on WMVHD in 720p, they play fine on these DVD players.

    WMVHD will not play on any standard DVD players. They use a completely different codec the player knows nothing about. They are primarily designed to play on PC's.

    There are a very few DVD players which have extra features to enable them to play some WMV discs but these are few and far between and Denon do not make one.
