VISTA MEDIA CENTER- CAN I PLAY HD-DVD VIA MEDIA EXTENDER?
I have Vista Ultimate. My PC has an LG combo Blu-Ray and HD-DVD drive in it.
I have installed PowerDVD 8, and I can play Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs using Power
DVD.

I wrote and registered an XML file that points Windows Media Center to Power
DVD for HD-DVD and Blu-Ray playback; when you tell Media Center to PLAY DVD
with a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD disk in the drive, it starts Power DVD which can
then play the content, at up to 1080p.

Snce my computer's hardware and software is capable of playing Blu-Ray and
HD-DVDs, if I got a Media Extender like Linksys DMA 2100, would Media Center
stream the Blu-Ray or HD-DVD content to the Extender?


It seems like if Windows Media Center is REALLY a "MEDIA CENTER" it ought to
be able to play these high-def disk formats! I mean, come on here people!
Why would I want a Media Center if I couldn't connect it to my big screen and
watch HD-DVDs???

I know if I rip the disks to high-def .WMV files, then Media Center will
stream them to the Extender. But that is an awful lot of work! VISTA is
supposed to make life EASIER.....!

MC does not support playing of any DVDs with an extender due to legal issues
relative to playing DVDs over a network.
