  • Early Access Reminder

    Just want to remind everyone to look at the wiki entry for Early Access before sending me a PM or email asking why you can't dl the Early Access builds.

    Early Access is intended to reward those who contribute.  You don't just have to contribute here; other sites and ways work too.  Also, while there is a monetary path it's important to understand why it exists (and the alternative as well).

    If you are adding value to the larger community and feel that you should be included in the group let me know; but please be realistic and understand that the metric is quality not quantity.

  • Tweet

    I gave in tonight and joined twitter.  Maybe this web 2.0 thing isn't so bad after all :)

  • W7RC1 DTB Addin

    1.0.0.1

    - remove video/dvd bookmarking
    - compile for DTB1.2.1.7

    NOTE:  If you don't have gacutil (I guess why would you :)), just copy the dll to the ehome folder and it will work.

  • Fixing the wrong problem

    I have to admit that being able to use an OCUR tuner on a non-OEM PC is a cool, in an academic way, but honestly I don't see what all the fuss is about. 

    Was the OEM constraint really the blocking issue for all those enthusiasts?  Am I missing something, or is the biggest problem with the device (DRM) is still glaringly present?

  • For Shame

    When I tried to watch a Blue-ray movie on Sat. Cyberlink PDVD (7.3) forced me to download the latest rev of their player.  Later when we went to watch a H.264 recording I discovered that the PDVD H.264 decoder wasn't available anymore (found out later that the VC-1 wasn't either, but it won't be missed).  Fortunately I keep copies of each update so I was able get back to the previous revision, and take a copy of the VideoFilter folder (C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\VideoFilter) before installing the 5105 update, running regsvr32 on CL264dec.ax got everything working the way I want again.

    What I find really upsetting about it all, is the shifty way that Cyberlink took away functionality from a product that I'd paid for (actually the second time this happened with the same product) through a mandatory update.  Cyberlink you suck!
