    Pop quiz time. Cyberlink has created a system diagnosis/adviser tool to validate computer readiness for HD playback (either in Blu-ray or HD-DVD).

    We have the software hosted on our site (only for this group!) or you can go to the original link.

    DBStalk link: http://hr20.dbstalk.com/apps/BD_HD_Advisor.exe
    Original link at Cyberlink: http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/bdhd_support/diagnosis.jsp (you have to answer a few questions to download.)

    Once you've installed the app and run it, please post your results here.

    My bad news:

    May your results be better.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Looks like I need a new video card (well, and a new drive too:p )

    I do an ALT+PrtSc then save that image into paint.

    Or in Vista, you can use the snipping tool.

    Thank you very much Tom. I did not know about the snipping tool. That will help for a lot of things.

    Btw, looks like this application only accounts for 1/2 of your physical RAM.

    Alas, doesn't like my video card .. at least for full quality .. My video has been really good, though, it's the audio I'm having troubles with.

    Ah... for kicks I ran it on mine.
    (I cheated too... I pulled my XBOX 360 HD-DVD drive, just to see if it detected)

    My Desktop. No sense in checking HD-DVD is there? Of course, I have no Blu-Ray Player. I'll have to think about the graphics driver.

    Says my graphics card is no good. When you check the site, it has a specific list of cards and mine is as good spec wise as some of those. I don't think it checks video card specs, just models. This is from my laptop as my main computer is giving me errors with the software.

    The adviser is beta and potentially unaware of all the cards/combinations out there. If the specs are good, that might do.

    The other thing you can do is save the log and pull up the .html file it saves for much more detail.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Pretty sure I see why. It does not recognize shared video memory, only whats physically attatched on the video card.

    As a data point, it listed my CPU as the standard 2.4GHz. It didn't test to see how fast it was going (3.0GHz), only what Intel said it was.

    RAD, I'm guessing your computer, like mine, are borderline ok. I would suggest updating your video drivers and we'll see where things go.

    Cheers,
