Hi,

My current set up is capable of running video games in Ultra HD HDR using a fifth generation intel i7 and a Nvidia 10 series graphics card. The PC should therefore have no trouble running video at the same resolution. Unfortunately PowerDVD 17 currently requires a seventh generation intel processor. the very most recent range of intel processors, along with a motherboard capable of supporting the processor. Upgrading the processor alone wouldn't be quite so bad, but the motherbord would be a big job to replace as everything else in the computer is conected to it.

If possible, please can PowerDVD 17 be updated / upgraded to include support for other PC set ups capable of running Ultra HD HDR video to avoid seemingly unecessary hardware upgrades like these?

If it were up to Cyberlink, I'm sure they would, but it's Hollywood's DRM that dictates what Power DVD 17 is to use to play UHD Blu-ray's.

There are some drivers that may be in the works for NVIDIA, but I believe the requiremet for Kaby Lake and SGX path is still required for the MoBo.

I got tired of waiting and the cost to update an entire HTPC was more expensive then buying a stand-alone player.

Plus, the ones that have UHD running on a computer are having problems getting HDR to work _ amongst other things _ driver issues...

I couldn't agree more. The demands are just TOO brutal.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your suggestions. Indeed the requirements are not up to PowerDVD17. PowerDVD17 plays back what the hardware delivers. In the future other hardware could be supported.

Greetings
