Quidam: ps. The software is cheap, but you could argue it should be free and part of the driver and application software suite that comes with the installation disc

There are licenses payable for the use of those technologies. Since so few people would want it, that would be foolish to pay the licence for every card sold.

Then I guess card manufactures like Auzentech and Asus are foolish because that is exactly what they do

richms: I have had massive problems with latency and dropouts when using software to encode back to DD - I was trying to use the built in one in FFDshow or the other coded (cant recall which) - analog will just work, and doesnt have the lossy encode to a compressed format to contend with.

I don't know what to say, I own 3 cards that all have this feature, and I've never had a problem with any of them, performance or stability, whether gaming or watching video

ps I use mediaportal with powerdvd 8 ultra to support hi def decoding (freeview HD)

The only one I have had it work reliably with was my old nvidia nforce2 board. Others will put out little skips in the output when pushing the machine hard.

Damager: I wish my Panasonic DVD Recorder could play those high quality mkv files! It does xvid/divx only unfortunately.

Another way to play them, if you have a BluRay player that supports AVCHD is to demux the audio/video in the MKV files (without referring to their origin, many of the HD MKV's out there have h.264 video and DD or DTS audio) and remux as m2ts format. There will be no loss in quality in that. Then author the m2ts to AVCHD format on a DVD (might required a DL DVD) which many BD players can handle.

System Two: Popcorn Hour A200 ,  Oppo BDP-80 BluRay Player with hardware mode to be region free, Vivitek HD1080P 1080P DLP projector with 100" screen. Harman Kardon HK AVR 254 7.1 receiver, Samsung 4K player, Google Chromecast
