Can anyone that has used Leopard confirm if the new version will allow me to playback HD-DVD using the Xbox 360 HD-DVD player? Amazon has a great deal going right now and I am tempted to buy it and use with my new imac when Leopard comes out.

I've seen confirmation of HD DVD and Blu-ray prefs in the DVD player app, but haven't seen any proof that it works. I can think of two things: Apple are either waiting for retail release before getting an AACS key, or it's going to come in a future update.

In the meantime, the X360 drive works perfectly under XP on my ATI-based MBP (enough acronyms for you?)

Well I know I could use it under XP but it would be nice to know that I could use it without boot camp or emulator software.
