Dear Cyberlink, this is not acceptable. I expect to get support in the future with bug fix and updates for this newly purchased power DVD version !!!

The thing that really burns me up is that if individual users such as yourself can discover all of this, you know that CyberLink is well aware of it.

Rather than complicate their test matrix or fix a bug, they simply pawn it off by saying it's Intel's fault and refuse to support it. Now, what's the excuse for continuing to list the G33 as supported hardware? Does PM not attend their meetings? Does marketing control the website and refuse to talk to anyone in dev?
In the hopes that I can save someone else from the nightmare of wasted time and money that I went through with this product, PowerDVD WILL NOT WORK WITH THE G33. Regardless of the fact that it is on the supported list. CyberLink sent me to Intel.


Dear Robert,

Thank you for contacting CyberLink Technical Support.

We understand your concern related with PowerDVD 7.3.

Please note that Intel G33 graphics drivers does not support Blu-Ray playback.

We suggest you to contact Intel support for further assistance regarding this issue.

Well, I found a newer version of the advisor tools on the website. The new version says my PC passes all tests. I think that might be even worse. Why does PowerDVD refuse to play - telling me that my video driver is unsupported????

I bought a PC with built in G33 chipset and HDMI output along with an LG Blue Ray drive and PowerDVD because you claimed to support it. In fact, you put out a press release to boast about it!!! So how is it that your advisor tells me that the video card and its driver are not supported. Trying to play a blue ray disc just pops up a dialog confirming that it is not supported. I click the link and the VERY FIRST item on the supported list is the Intel G33!!!!! What is going on here?

After reading horror stories about this on other forums, I upgraded to Vista as some claim that this works on Vista. Now I'm out another $200 and it still doesn't work!

I"ve installed the latest drivers from Intel. No joy.
