thought I updated this list the other day, must have been a server blip. I'll update again.

Q: Can I play Divx on my Hollywood+ or Creative DXR3?
A: Download Divx+ software on Download page and make sure you have current H+ drivers.

Q: Why wont Divx+ work for me?
A: Try opening Divx+ then Real Magic DVD player and choose adjust borders. Then try again... and again. Don't even bother trying if you have WinXP. Check news://news.sigmadesigns.com

Q: Do I have to use the Real Magic DVD player with my Hollywood+ card?
A: No, the only alternative available is called Eugene's DVD player found on the Download page.

Q: Can I disable macrovision and/or region check on my Hollywood+?
A: Yes, with Eugene's DVD player.

edit: fixed the url, fixed it right

New Options

You now have new options if you are a Hollywood+ owner.

Q: What is the most advanced way to play DVD's using my Hollywood+?
A: Currenty Zoomplayer and the new H+ Directshow filter allows the most feature rich DVD Playback. Check here for more info.

Q: What about playing AVI's with AC3 audio using my H+?
A: This is now also possible using Zoomplayer and new directshow filters. Check here for more info.

Q: Can my H+ output AC3 from avi's using above methods?
A: Not yet but hopefully in the future. But you shouldn't worry if you have a digital output capable soundcard. Read macdaddy's method here.

(ps: thanks macdad, jake... oh and blight!)

This info if fantastic...

Thanks for all the above...this goes a long way in helping me figure out how to play divx's on my (yet-to-be) new home theatre system.

With all this development on the Hollywood plus card, perhaps it's a must-have to output into my receiver....that remote looks mighty good though <grin>...

Question I have is, should I get a separate 5.1 receiver or an all-in-one DVD player/5.1 receiver. (Thinking of the Sony DAV500 system).

Seperate Components

I would definately use seperate components. Spend the extra money to get yourself what you really want!!!

Seperate components will always output BETTER than integrated. And when I say seperate I mean down to a seperate tuner for your amp. Not an amp with a built in tuner...

Hope that this helps

Gaww-DAMN - What's that SMELL???

You may want to contact a forum moderator to request having this question moved to the proper forum in its own thread. You've not only posted it in a section completely unrelated to your problem, you've done so within a "sticky," and chances of anyone with helpful knowledge of seeing it here are almost nil.
