- Would I need Windows Vista to play content from media player to the TV?
Building PCs are pretty afforadable in HK, so instead of spending on dedicated hardware, it's cost effective for me to simply build a PC and put it in the living room! Cyberlink provides some guidance here:
Also one issue with the Gplay seems to be that one has to load all content into Gplay prior to playing the movie on the TV. This implies that you have to have a PC connected anyway and there will be double storage requirements. My thinking is why not play directly from the PC?
Regarding your comment on downscaling HD to regular DVD resolution,
- do you loose resolution or clarity by doing this? My objective is to view the edited movie on LCD TV in it's highest resolution.
I can't wait to get into High Definition world, but there is really heaps to learn.
