    I'm just interested in what has been put on that format. I have Step Into Liquid and I know of T-2. Any master list for this? Has anyone watched these on a projector or HD setup?

    Besides those I know there are some IMAX titles. Just a few though. Can´t answer which ones.
    Sorry.

    But to my knowledge there are no more "real" features than those you mentioned.

    I thought Artisan's Standing in the Shadows of Motown (2002) had a WMV-9 version in the package.

    One thing's for certain. Watch this stuff on a 720p capable projector, and you'll HATE regular TV and DVD technology forever! [​IMG]

    Here's a good place to start. They've got WMVHD trailers, and links to direct purchases of current WMVHD titles. Be warned, some of the trailers have "dial-home" DRM, as does T2 and "Standing...", but I've read over at AVS that some of the newer titles might have on-disc DRM. Neither is very palatable, but there's not really a way around it.

    Wow! How did I miss this stuff. I download the Alexander clip today and was just blown away. I've been holding out to get a new video card with component output, but this may put me over the edge!

    Note: As a video format, WMV-9 is dead. The vast majority of the CODEC will remain in the form of VC-1 on both HD-DVD & BluRAY, but those players will not play WMV-9 disks. That said, if you roll your own movies and want to use an HTPC with enough horsepower, WMV is pretty slick.

    There were a ton of really, really great movies released in Germany on WMV 9 DVDs. I'd love to get my hands on those discs, but I don't think they ship them outside of Germany.

    I don't remember exactly which movies were on this format, but I believe that both "Tomb Raider" movies were released, as well as "Underworld" and a whole bunch of other "must haves." I wish they would release them here, in the US. [​IMG]

    Does all WMVHD movies need net verification and by that I mean you have to connect to a Internet server to be able to watch the movie? Can you only play them in a HTPC?

    As far as I know, only 2 titles have the online DRM: T2 and Step into liquid.

    REVIEW - AVeL LinkPlayer 2 (Part 1)
    (HDSOURCE)

    "....

    WHAT IS IT? - The AVeL LinkPLayer 2 is the first DVD player compatible with HD file formats such as Windows Media Video HD and DivxHD. In addition, it is a full featured network media player.
    ...
    Of course the most important feature is the ability to read and playback HD files smoothly (720p or 1080i), even from a DVD. We are happy to report it does this with flying colors. We had no problem with playing back Windows Media 9 HD (WMVHD), DivxHD, and MPEG2 HD files at bitrates up to 10Mbps, 5Mbps, and 20Mbps respectively. Playback from DVD, even at 20Mbps, was smooth as butter.
    ...
    Unfortunately, if you are looking at buying commercial WMVHD DVD's, such as the popular IMAX series available at Amazom.com, hold your horses. These DVDs include DRM (a copy protection scheme) and Windows Media 9 Professional Audio (5.1 audio), both of which the LinkPlayer does not yet support. IO-Data indicates these features are being added in the next firmware release expected in January.
    ...."
