I have a Pioneer BD drive, Powerdvd 8 Ultra (yes, the expensive one. $149 AUD) and it all works smooth and excellent. Every now and then I install a patch to update the anti-piracy thingy, but never had a problem before that couldn't be patched.

I agree, it's like Jakup buying a dell.

Not quite. Go over to AVS forums and I bet you any money. Any person with a serious HT setup. I.E. High end Projector is using a suitable standalone. Like one of the high end Sony's or Panasonic. A HTPC and PS3 is great for us everydayers, but someone who is into the highend, probably wouldn't use a HTPC for BD playback. One of the biggest problems for PCs has been HD Audio along with the problems getting certain discs to play.

This is one of the few reasons I haven't jumped into the BR world yet. I've heard tons of horror stories of software not working properly, can't get 7.1, etc. I think I would rather buy a dedicated player or a PS3. Actually I wouldn't mind waiting until the PS3 drops price and then I'll grab one.

stop lisening, and start to act

if you do everything correctly it works with no issues, from December 07 to now I only had 1 issue so far. Firefly BD wouldn't play because of that stupid new BD+ version, ANYDVD HD fixed that in seconds.

Haha. I plan on getting a bigger (bigger than 32") and better (1080p, 120Hz) TV for my living room sometime this next year so I'll probably get a BR drive when I get it.
