If my post is not in the right spot, move it, so be it, one can't please all the people all the time, and I couldn't really give a toss anyway.
A simple question that others may not also know the answer to and a simple answer is all that's required, having been down the "forum" road in many different places with many thousands of mostly answers to fools with fake system sigs containing gear not yet released in some situations, I did not come down in that last shower of rain.
Where sometimes a simple throw away comment leads to a full on arguement over absolutely nothing can be somewhat irritating to say the least, many will understand.
To those that offered an answer I thank you, those upset with it not being in their chosen forum, sorry but tough luck.
I made a choice of a place to ask a simple question, sneaky sarcastic remarks meant for nothing but to start a flame war is pointless and a waste of everyones time.
Yes I have used several versions of Power DVD and others with differing results that are not perfect but acceptable, then again having proper DVD players as well it's never going to be a real drama, while the PC may be used to copy the DVD it was never meant to replay them "at any stage" in any sort of full on manner, purchasing of rather expensive 5.1 DVD players with more than enough watts, 225W of genuine noise to be exact, enough to annoy neighbours 100 yards away if needed.
But the viewing of what is now a common thing IE; the Widescreen movie made to make us rush out and buy those $5,000 widescreen TV's, well they won't be sucking me in, I will wait until they are all $500 or so, and they will be, logic says the same as it has done with all PC prices, those $6,000 486 systems now worth nothing, the same will happen with the widescreen TV's.
Good old Pofessor Moore had it right when saying computing power doubles every 18 months, mind boggling indeed when a 64 bit 3200 has been out for some time now, expect in a year your basic system will be 6Gb +, not too shabby when they put a man on the moon with less than a 486DX system.
Stay cool, it's all good.
