This may be a dumb question, but I'm not too proud, and I want to be sure that my instincts are correct since I've never had such a problem.
I'm having a problem playing DVDs form original disk on my Gigabyte 780G Motherboard. The problem is that the screen is filled with fluorescent colored blocks obscuring the picture. I believe that this is a copy protection thing, since playback of backed-up DVDs is fine both from HDD and Disk.
I have the computer hooked up with a DVI cable to a DVI-HDMI adapter to my TV's HDMI slot and am running Vista Home Premium. Could the problem be that the adapter is preventing a proper copy protection handshake (or whatever it is called)? Would a new HDMI cable solve my problem? Is there anything else I should try before dropping some cash on a new cable?
Everything worked fine with the same setup on my old 6150 motherboard running MCE05.
