WMP Image Quality
I'm not sure when or how, but for some reason the image when playing DVDs with Windows Media Player is just horrible. I've tried everything but formatting the hard drive pretty much. The image looks all blocky around the edges of objects, like it is negitively Anti-Alaised. It gets so bad in some pictures, it looks like I am running it at a MUCH lower resoltion. I get a perfect picture with WinDVD5 though. I tried reinstalling WMP10 and got the same thing.
I double checked with some IMAX movies. The DVD disk looks horrible (worse than normal), but the WMV HD looks just great. I also checked DivX and it plays fine. In fact DivX looks much better than the DVDs right now.
