Is anyone aware of the issues surrounding the above combination of software products?  I'm having immense problems getting the two working together.

I'm using PowerDVD v7.3 which came bundled with my Pioneer blu-ray drive, and version of AnyDVD.  I of course need to use AnyDVD in order to watch my US purchased blu-ray discs.

I've tried searching the net for details on the possible clash of these two products, but it is almost impossible to sift through all the info to get a straight answer.  So I thought I'd ask here if anyone knows?

What drive are you using? I once tried AnyDVD and found in their FAQs they won't work at all well with region encoding on Matsushita drives.

She cool.  I realised I wasn't running version of AnyDVD on my HTPC.  So I upgraded to that and all works fine now!

Satch: Hey man,

Hi Satch,
Where did you get your BDC-S02?  Best I've seen in NZ is 450 bucks!  Or $510 if you want HD-DVD (RIP) thrown in as well.  Stand alone blu-ray players are only  $100 bucks more than that now.

I picked it up here in Auckland a few weeks ago at PB Technologies.  At the time it was selling for $399 + GST.
