Minimums should be ignored - recommended are much more likely to work and those are at the top.

If a person has deep pockets, then none of those specs would be sufficient, but that is not me. My question is if Blu Ray would perform on my machines. I'm quite sure that it could perform better on higher end equipment, but I think that I was clear in my interest on running it within my existing specs. Both rigs are within the official minimums, and my primary rig falls within the recommended specs.

I appreciate your perspective, but you need to appreciate the perspective of a person asking a question, for your's to be of the greatest value.

Agreed, it will most likely work - try it on the system with the recommended specs.

Digging this out of the bone yard, because I finally got a LG CH10LS20 and I received my one and only Blu Ray movie today. When I tried to play the movie, PowerDVD gave me a series of errors that I don't understand, except the fact that the movie didn't play. I then downloaded a trial of WinDVD and tried again, but when I attempt to run it, an error appears saying that I don't have a proper HDCP environment.

I have been going through my specs trying to figure what the problem is, but so far, I'm at a dead end. Is there some kind of advisor software that would pinpoint the problem?

Recent versions of the nVidia control panel include an HDCP status check. Does that tell you anything interesting?

I guess that I don't know what to look for, because I have the most recent driver (258.96), but I found nothing in the control panel that appeared to be for that purpose. Would you give me a pointer?

Hi seekermeister, long time no see

Anyways I don't currently have an HDCP system myself so I may be out of my league asking this question, but looking at your specs are your monitors HDCP capable? If not, that might be an issue?
