iirc, dvd's are 720x480.

I've been able to play dvd's through PDVD Ultra 8, and it didn't display that error message, but maybe its something to do with using component out (I'm using HDMI), and/or the weird HDCP restrictions (which shouldn't be applicable to dvd's).

I've gotten better results by using:

- Media Player Classic (player)
- Dscaler + IVTC (great mpeg-2 decoder plus inverse telecine to go back to 24p)
- FFDShow (scaling, color correction, noise removal)

... but its not for the faint of heart, hard to configure, but great results.
