    Hi There
    Just bought myself a Aopen16x DVD rom and installed it.
    The Rom came bundled with Cyberlink PowerDVD XP.

    I Installed the program and everything went fine.
    when I put a DVD in to play the program tells me that
    the DVD is copyright and it cannot play when the tv out is
    enabled.
    I cannot find where I can disable the tv out.

    Any suggestion please.

    Yes I did look there.

    I cannot find anything even related to the tv out of the card.

    PS:I have a Riva TNT 2 32 Mb graph card.

    Nvidia has macrovision support in all of its new drivers, but for some reason the new drivers ( because of nview ) think that you are always hooked up to an analog source, and the macrovision kicks in and says 'shove it, you can't play'...
    get any program that can play off-region DVD's ( DVD Region-free, and similar names ) and it will be able to remove the macrovision encoding, but quite frankly, that's borderline infringement, so i'll leave it to you to actually find the software to let you do this, and make your own moral decision.

    You can disable the nView TV-Out with Display Properties, Settings, Advanced, nView. I set it to disabled, and PowerDVD plays standard DVD's on my system without complaint. I never tried it with it enabled, I'll have to do that just for grins. ;)

    ... Well, I'm not sure what to think now, PowerDVD is happily playing the video with TV-Out enabled, and it's indeed showing up on my little video monitor. I wonder why mine works... :confused:
