Ok people,

Been reading up on the macrovision bits and I just don't understand, why

*******s won't let me play a region 1 retail boxed bought with 34.99
Canadian Matrix 1, with a "bought" oem Hitachi GD-2500 DVDROM, a retail
boxed hercules gf3 ti200 that bundled powerdvd 3 with a legit cdkey.

I do not see how I was pirating by watching this combo. And yet, all the
5x.xx drivers I tried gives me the macrovision corrupted squary screens.
This is just wrong. I am using the 41.09 for now and it works fine.

My question is: who can I contact to file a complaint?? (yeah like it
matters :P)


This is an oversight by some card manufuactuers. They used a TV out chip
which dosn't engage macrovison protection when you have a TV connected.
Nvidia have been forced (by a body enforcing copyright?)to emasculate DVD
playback on all such cards via the drivers.
