Question about Pioneer VSX-D511 Receiver
Hi I have a brank new hp multimedia desktop with a hd dvd player. theproblem i have is when i insert an hd dvd into the player i can see the disc title and files, but there is no way my player can play the file. do i need to download a new software program that will play it, or is there something else i can do. how can i make hd dvd's play on my hp. and i do have a hd dvd player installed.
Just picked this all up. I have also purchased a HP M9705 and have had the same problem,,,,HP support a total waist of time. My HD disk did not play. I also have a HDMI cable....on reading the advice above I switched this to my VGA cable and for the first time the disk played (rather than showing the disk on the drive).....now that it plays I have to try and work out why the cable does not allow the same to be viewed...after spending hours on this I feel I may be getting there. Is it not a shame that HP cannot be more supportive...if anybody has cracked this let me know

I had this problem. Turned out that I was using a DVI cable to connect my monitor to the video card, but my monitor was not HDCP compliant. Most HD-DVD's require the monitor to be HDCP compliant for digital output (i.e. over DVI or HDMI connections). Alternately, you can connect to your monitor via its analog (VGA) input instead, but you won't get HD output. I was able to do this using a VGA cable along with the VGA-DVI adapter for the video card output.
Cyberlink has a tool you can run to see if your system is capable of HD-DVD output. http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/bdhd_support/diagnosis.jsp
When I ran it, it gave me a red flag telling me my monitor was not HDCP compliant

Tips for a great answer:
DVD region codes are a digital-rights management technique designed to allow film distributors to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region.DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.
The American DVD Copy Control Association in California requires that DVD-player manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system - according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, an Australian government agency.
There are six different official regions and two informal variations. DVDs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available. In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.
