    I have BD iso playback in Windows7 w/ MC7 w/ MyMovies and PDVD8 and it is great,

    PDVD8 will play my DVD isos fine too, but when MC7 is in fullscreen autoplay is disabled and Media Player tries to play the DVD, how do I force autoplay of DVD w/ PDVD8 in MC7?

    It can't force it to auto in Media Center unless it';s registered with media Center,

    In other words, Power DVD needs to be visible as an option in Windows Media Center.

    Why is it that you need Windows Media Center open at all.

    Why not just play them through power DVD?

    Why have both prograns open at the same time?

    I am using this neat "front-end" called MyMovies that intergrates into Media Center, it works great w/ blu rays, I just have to get it to work w/ DVD's, it only works w/ DVD's in a window, when MC7 is full screen it disables auto play for DVD

    It organizes all your movies and adds info to your database automatically

    Hello,

    I tried a search for Power DVD Windows Media Center.

    I found that the latest version 9 Ultra integrates into Windows Media Center.

    Here's a sample exert:


    PowerDVD 9 feature highlights include:

    • TrueTheaterâ„¢ Technology, offering DVD up-scaling to HD-like quality
    • Cinema Mode for watching Blue-ray Discs via Windows Media Center
    • FancyView for browsing DVD chapters and titles stored in Movie Collection
    • High-definition home theater audio, including HDMI 1.3 compatibility and support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio formats
    • Blue-ray Disc playback even on low-spec PC
    It runs around $70.00.

    Thx for your help buddy but PDVD8 already works in Media Center 7 for blu ray, the problem is w/ playing DVD's because MC7 disables autoplay when it is in full screen

    WMP12 KNOWS it can't play blu rays, but insists on trying to play DVD's

    I would like to give the Microsoft asshat that thought up that 1 a nice "Hawaiian punch"

    Maybe PDVD8 needs an update only available in PDVD9
    Maybe MyMovies is not working properly

    Nah, MS are asshats, has to be windows problem.
