    Two versions of PowerDVD are installed on my system - 8 Ultra and 10 Ultra. Can I use PowerDVD 8 for another Blu-ray Region Code and PowerDVD 10 for Region A at the same time?

    Unlikely. The region code is saved to the drive's firmware. You could probably use a separate USB ODD to do this.

    Sorry, missed the BR bit, you think they'd change the name to PowerBluRay ;) I guess it depends if PowerDVD shares or checks the registry key or the other version.

    Since you have both, why don't you try it and let us know?

    If it doesn't work, you can use AnyDVD-HD.

    No, it doesn't work. :mad:

    But because I have only one Region B Blu-ray, I can live without it...
