Does anyone have an opinion as to the best DVD software to use with the G400 (non-Max)?

I'm getting a little 2X DVD for Xmas, and would like to know whick software gives the best playback.

My system:
Celeron 566 @ 850
Asus P2B-B
Matrox G400
Diamond Monster MX300
Viewsonic E655 15" monitor (I know, I know)

I found the bundled version of Cinemaster very nice ... should be on your G400 CD.

Just don't expect the bundled cinemaster to work in W2K...

Win DVD or PowerDVD for W2K

I tried WinDVD, but often can't output the proper signal. Vertically adds a green flashing strip below and squeezes the signal.

I must admit that picture quality is indeed better than that of PowerDVD, smt about antialiasing and also color smoothness.

pioneer 104f, pentium 3/733, win me

I also used to have problems with WinDVD - the green stripe or other artifacts at the bottom of the screen. But go into the advanced monito settings and into "DualHead" and onward to "DVDMax Options" and check "Preserve source cropping" - the it will be pictureperfect.
