Hmm, my Sentia came with Anyplay but it wasnt in startup so only ran when I wanted it too. DVDs for me play fine using Windows Media Player with or without Anyplay running. I'm glad you sorted out your problems with your display, maybe we should start a display thread and post our configs so that we can try others and maybe improve on our settings.
I havent installed powerstrip so my display is standard to how it came, do you recommend this? Also might re-install OS, not 100% as everything seems good atm.
