Sir, my hat's off to you. I tried that but only got as far as the first two keys. The rest I was clueless as to what to do. It worked like a charm. Thanks again. Issue solved.

WMC starts, but DVD is don't play automatic.

Reg key worked perfectly for DVD's for me. Also added below to AutoPlay Blu-Rays in WMC7 (w/PDVD9 installed).

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\AutoplayHandlers\EventHandlers \PlayBluRayOnArrival]
"EHomeDVDDropTarget"=""

The drop down for Blu-Ray in AutoPlay shows Play DVD movie using Windows Media Center, instead of Blu-Ray, but it does open PDVD inside Media Center like it's supposed to. It works for Blu-Rays, but don't know how reliable it will be though.

Sorry, Comcast cut me off for the month due to "excessive" bandwidth usage.
