Windows 7: Blu Ray Player For Windows 7 Media Center

Blu Ray Player For Windows 7 Media Center

Hi all.
I know this has been asked before as I have read some of the threads on here. I have 2 media canter PC's used to record off air HD TV, watch Netflix and BBC. I have ordered a couple of BD Roms as I finally decided to bite the bullet. Regular DVD movies look great upscaled to 1080p so as an electronics engineer who has dealt with TV and monitors for years I know a good picture when I see it. The drives are Pioneer and do not come with software. Each machine has VLC and media player classic on it. What else do I need? Do I need to buy Power DVD or a similar product? I don't expect to be buying many blu rays but will change our rentals forom Netflix over to them. I did buy Avatar a 3 disc version of the movie with three different versions of the film on it. I just want to know the latest work arounds and ideas as I have no experience with Blu ray at all. Oh the parts should be here in the next day or two but I may not be able to install them due to recent surgery. Thanks in advance. Tony.

I prefer Total Media Theatre. It's better than Power DVD and integrates better into Media Center, IMO.

Oh, and you can often find discount coupon codes for Total Media Theatre that cut the price in half.

This link may help, Tony. Like you, I don't intend to play blu-rays on my PC much so if there's free software I'm all for it so long as it's legal. But, free isn't always easy so it might be too involved to get it to work. You can watch the You Tube tutorial & decide for yourself.

You have the VLC Player but need a few other things to get it work. As barnabas1969 mentioned, there's purchase software as well. I'd recommend that if you need full features. HTH
