I am getting the hardware to upgrade my HTPC for Freeview DVB-T(HD). I was reading Scott Bartley's article on High Definition in the latest NZPC World mag & he stated that it would cost $295 for Cyberlink's PowerDVD Ultra. I just about gagged. There must be options rather than purchase an entire suite for which I would only ever use the codecs.
Would these work? http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/cyberstore/order_77_ENU.html
Or maybe buy a Blu-Ray DVD Writer & get a copy of a semi-crippled PowerDVD or Intervideo alternative suite.
