Unhappy Enabling HW acceleration in WinDVD 8 Platinum screws things up.

I just installed and patched WinDVD 8 Platinum and randomly grabbed The Mummy Ultimate Edition off the shelf and popped it in. The menus are hieroglyphics that show the menu text when hovered over, except for some reason, none of the hovers worked.

Tinkering around, I found that if either "Use Hardware Decode Acceleration" or "Use Hardware Color Acceleration" is checked, the problem continues. Unchecking both resolves the problem, but means that all the benefits of the video cards and PureVideo are lost.

Anyone else having this trouble or have a solution? Thanks.

I don't enable Hardware Acceleration in PowerDVD or WMP or even NeroShowtime. It messes things up here, too.

I thought Purevideo was supposed to work with all players now.

Well, what's the point of nVidia's hyping PureVideo and the properties of their GPUs when actually trying to use these features doesn't work?!?

Had the same problem with my 7600GST. Now it's working fine with my ATI card. Go figure.
