WOW! After reading that I'm definately waiting as long as possible before I switch to Vista. No wonder sound is so screwed up not to mention playing any HD content.

Does anyone know if the new 8800 cards really support HDCP because nothing else currently does.

Damn what a mess.

Mine does, or at least that's what the latest Cyberlink BD/HD Advoisor says. Having no DHCP display, I can't really test. Some 7600s also really have HDCP, such as MSI's NX7600GT Diamond Plus. There are a few others, I don't remember the makers and models - a google search probably would find them without too much difficulty.

I have yet to notice any problem in the sound, but I don't have a creative labs card in my PC.
