I want to take advantage of the up-scaling properties for SD DVDs in Power DVD9 Ultra while within the Media Center UI.
I normally play my BR isos with Media Browser or My Movies within Media Center. So I guess the answer to the question is that I want both. If that is possible.
Well if you use Media Browser I believe there is an option to launch external applications. I no longer use Media Browser so I can't be more specific where the option is located but it is in the config somewhere.

For MyMovies I am honestly not sure if that is an option or not. For Movie Library\Video Library I'll dig out my old plugin for doing this, might take me a while as I'm immobile for a couple days and I don't think it is on my server.

Take your time!
I really appreciate your help! I have been struggling with this one for awhile. In the meantime I will take a closer look at the config in MB.

Power DVD 9 stopped working for me in Windows 7 x64 RTM - I have no idea why - I installed the latest nvidia drivers, but it crashes on each launch - even with compatibility. But I understand why you want it as default - videos look very nice with it.
