Pioneer BDC-202BK Playback Issue - no video! Please help

Hi everyone,

I bought my first Blu-Ray DVD last night (Region B - I am in the UK).

The problem is that I get sound, but no video.

I am running the folllowing:

  • Vista 64 bit ultimate

  • Nero 8 with blu ray plugin.

  • Pioneer BDC-202BK firware version 1.01 via SATA. (I cannot upgrade to the latest version, is this because it is an OEM version? If so, what can I do about this?)

  • 2 x HIS ATI Radeon HD 4870 in CrossfireX

  • Samsung Syncmaster T200 HD

  • Newest version of ATi catalyst with Vista x64 hotfix

  • Using a DVI to HDMI adapater at the back of the GPU, plugging into my HDMI slot on my monitor.

Now I have tried different resolutions (downscaling) and different regions just in case, but nothing has worked.

I also tried using DVI-DVI, but I got nothing again.

I did notice that the when I viewed the playback information when Nero was playing, it reported that the resolution was 1920x1080, regardless of the fact that I was running in a lower resolution in Windows. I cannot see any settings to change this in Nero though?

Has anyone got any ideas? are there any known issues with my GPU’s and Vista 64bit and blu-ray? I’m struggling to find solutions.

I intend to try the PowerDVD trial tonight to see if I can get any results.

Any help would be great (especially about upgrading the firmware of my OEM drive)

regards
Jp
