Slysoft (reknowned for their much loved and highly popular "AnyDVD" encryption removal utility) have just released "ANYDVD HD", a very powerful HD-DVD manipulation tool.
Utilizing this software will allow you to watch HD-DVD content without the need for a HDCP compliant graphics card and display, and it will also allow PowerDVD ultra to play back the content which would otherwise simply not work.
AnyDVD, a software favorite for DVD movie aficionados, has hit the HD era. SlySoft has quietly released AnyDVD HD over the weekend, offering similar decryption capabilities as its standard-definition version.
AnyDVD HD removes AACS encryption from HD DVDs, which will also allow the user to watch movies over a digital display connection without HDCP compliant graphics card and display. The software will also enable PowerDVD Ultra to run titles released by Studio Canal, The Weinstein Company, Kinowelt, Optimum Releasing-studios whose movies previously did not run on the PC player.
Another feature of AnyDVD HD is what SlySoft calls "magic file replacement" to remaster any commercial movie disc using simple XML scripts. These scripts will "magically" replace the files on the physical disc so that the user can customize discs without making a copy to a hard drive.
