CyberLink’s Profile 1.1-enabled PowerDVD shown at CES

A lot of people are using PowerDVD to get their high def disc playback on their HTPC. With all of the problems I have seen, this latest version of PowerDVD should be heart warming. Not only are we getting Profile 1.1, they are promising decoding of lossless HD CODECs sucs as DTS-HD.


Apparently, CyberLink was busy demonstrating its forthcoming Profile 1.1-enabled PowerDVD 7 Ultra software at CES, which allowed Sunshine to be played back "perfectly" with picture-in-picture enabled. Also, they were able to confirm that the aforementioned application will indeed play nice with DTS-HD tracks and that DTS-HD MA support was just around the bend. Reportedly, the update will be available gratis to current owners of PowerDVD Ultra next month.
