hello just read a thread to do with power dvd.i have 4.0 and i belive there is an upgrade to 5.0,i looked on cyberlink site but could not find an upgrade from 4 to 5,just patches for both of them,can any one help please?thanks,peter
thanks for your help,i did not know i had to pay for it,i got 4.0 free with my dvd drive,i am a little confused by the fact that 5.0 has 5.1 sound but should i be able to get 5.1 anyway as i have a soundblaster live 5.1 card and speakers?
The OEM copies (the version you get free with the DVD Drive) generally only allow stereo sound regardless of the sound-card.
I have a SB PCI 512 with 4.1 speakers. I could only get stereo sound until i bought the upgrade to 5 Deluxe and got 4.1 surround sound (not sure why i kept saying 5.1 thats the DVD player downstairs!!!)
The way to check how many speakers your copy supports is to open PowerDVD, right click on the screen where the movie appears, select About, double click the PowerDVD logo down the left of the About box and scroll down until you find the Audio Output Capability. This tells you the maximum number of speakers it supports. 2 = Stereo. 8 = up to 7.1.
