Default Add-on owners who don't use a 360..need advice

thinking about using my add-on with my pc so I wanted to find out which app would be best for HD DVD playback...from what I have read, my two options are DVD power ultra and DVD anywhere...

I know Ultra is $100...how much is DVD anywhere? are both stable? heard that Ultra can be buggy at times...are there any other options?

any advice is appreciated...thanks.

Power DVD Ultra 7.3 and you may have to use and/or may want to consider AnyDVD HD. My rig is supposed to be HDCP compliant, the video card has a sticky and the monitor says it is in the manual, but according to Power DVD Ultra, and the Cyberlink Advisor, it sees my system as non-compliant. AnyDVD gets around this issue and allows me to play the HDs or Rip them to the hard drive so I may keep the disks on a shelf for safe keeping. I believe Slysoft has a sale on right now until the end of the calendar year.

Cost me CDN $:
$199.00 HD DVD Drive
$100.00 Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra 7.3
$70.00 AnyDVD HD

My HD Add-on drive goes back and forth from the PC to the Xbox 360 in the living room. Once my A2 I bought off ebay comes in, the Add-on will stay on the PC.
