    Anybody else have a problem playing back Superman Returns or Hulk on the PC? I am running AnyDVD HD & PowerDVD Ultra 7.1 on Windows Vista Home Premium.

    1. Superman Returns freezes when trying to play back the main movie files

    2. Hulk starts with the Special Feature documentary, but I can play the files manually.

    Superman Returns played fine while I had Windows Media Center Edition 2005, but was a little choppy. Now, it doesn't play at all after upgrading to Vista.

    I can rip and play Superman Returns ok but the subtitles are always diplayed and I haven't found any way to turn them off. Do you have this problem as well?

    PowerDVD Ultra 7.1 is very unreliable running on Vista. I'm falling back to XP until both become more stable.

    Roog, I have the exact same problem as you described. Thinking about going back to XP also.

    PeaInAPod, didn't work either. No big deal. Superman Returns is not my favorite HD-DVD anyways, but I did want to hear it in Dolby TrueHD on the PC. Oh well.

    @Roog, AnyDVD now has an option for "Subtitle Transparency" so you can make the subtitles invisible even if they are on.
