Another Blu-Ray Plug-In Installation Failure

Question

I have 2011 Pro and ordered the playback plug-in and it will not install or even give me a screen to enter in the key. After I click run my Epson scan screen pops up. Tried this three times with the same result. Shouldn't it automatically install itself in cineplayer? There doesn't seem to be any instructions on the Roxio site.

Go into msconfig and disable startup items while installing.

When I click my download I get this.

You disable programs in msconfig and reboot THEN try installing the Roxio Plugin.

Thanks I got it installed. Unfortunately I found out that my digital monitors do not meet the new HDCP protection standards. I keep getting that message every time I try to play a BD movie. Roxio should advise people that their monitors are more then like obsolete. A waste of $30.00. But thanks again.

Nope. I have two 3 yr old Dell 24 inch monitors that have DVI but are not HDCP compliant. Caveat Emptor

Shelby, Roxio has a 30 day like it or return it policy...

Thanks for the info. I am not sure what I am going to do. Been looking at a couple of 25" HP LCD that are compliant for 250 each, a hundred dollars off each one. Hey it is only money. I like the first computer on your list. I have also been looking into the GTX 450s that you are using. How are they?

I build a machine a year ago just before the I7 systems came out. Always a day late. I went with a pair of GTX 260s at the time. Also Thermaltake Xaser V1 case, Intel core 2 Quad Q9550,Nvidia nforce 790I Ultra SLI ATX mobo, Patriot DDR3 2000 ram 4GB, and a pair of VelociRaptor 10,000 rpm 300GB HDs in raid 0. Expensive then, it would be a lot cheaper now. But it should last awhile.

The software will work with the HP, HD compliant monitors, with your current computer. The HD/Hidef movies will knock your socks off. :)

That really doesn't right... Where did you come up with that conclusion?

Probalby why I never saw that message ;)

My Nvidia GTX 260 video cards only have 2 DVI connections in each of them. So that option is out, unless I want to get adapters. The PowerDVD 9 program that came with my BD burner did mention what you are doing, however it also stated that they would not be BD/HD quality, might as well use a standard DVD. By the way the Powerdvd 9 program is loaded with what I would call spam. Way to cluttered.

I first ran across this over a year ago. Seems that the movie consortium made the decison that playback would only be 1900 x 1080 (or in some cases like laptops, less). It is a copy protection built into every Blu Ray disc. In the case of my computer...I ended upgrading my monitor to an LG 23" HD monitor (these days...the prices are very reasonable). Once done...Blu Ray playback was never an issue again. I use Cineplayer BD and love it!

 

On my TV, which is an HD Model...but three years old without HDMI...I had to fool the system. My HD Box and Blu Ray player both have HDMI output...and when not connectived via the HDMI...give DVD quality. My TV has DVI inputs...so I had to purchase two HDMI to DVI cables...BUT...as far as my Blu Ray player and HD box from Verizon are concerned...it's HD all the way...and my TV blazes away in 1080. The people with the copy protection scheme went a bit too far...but we have to live with what there is. There are other options, but not to be discussed here...

Big hassle paying big profits to everyone selling this stuff IMHO. Once of the TV manufacturers {Toshiba?] came up with an alternative using plain old cat5 to carry the same signal as HDMI, but there's less or no opportunity for the current overpricing so it'll probably never catch on.

 

Anyway, AFAIK HDMI/DVI HDCP protection relies on a handshake between connected devices, causing all sorts of problems -- I have them with HDCP compliant hardware, though never thought about it with PC monitors. I will have to check the wife's & 1 son's.
