Slysoft has released AnyDVD HD version 184.108.40.206 which strips HD-DVDs AND Blu-Ray discs of their encryption and region codes.

The software can also remove unwanted movie features, including subtitles and prohibition messages such as copyright and FBI warnings, according to the company.
If you are planning to move into high definition HTPC and if you haven’t recently upgraded your PC, then you are probably looking at a total revamp. A typical system would be an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1 GB of memory, a 256 MB high end graphics card and of course your Blu Ray or HD DVD player with the accompanying software.
