I don't like being biased, so I will be upfront about this. I love PowerDVD. I've used the program ever since I bought a DVD burner in 2002, when they were around $800. A few years ago, I had some kind of PC issue where PowerDVD wouldn't run because there were some conflicting graphics card issues, so I was forced to use rival program Intervideo WinDVD for about 5 minutes; and look, I know many of you guys like it, but I didn't. So I formatted the PC rather than live without PowerDVD.
So last month I get myself a Blu-ray ROM drive, a Lite-On LH-2B1S to be exact, and I ended up finding a few incompatibilities with a few discs whilst running PowerDVD 7. So I was suitably annoyed. But lo and behold, only a mater of days later I receive a press release from CyberLink announcing PowerDVD 8. Let's dive in and see what improvements have been made, and if those incompatibilities have been rectified.
