We strongly recommend that you update your graphics card driver to the latest version.
Graphic Card Memory:
We recommend having at least 512 MB of video memory to ensure the smooth playback of Blu-ray/Blu-ray 3D Disc titles and TrueTheater 3D.
If you want to use digital output during Blu-ray/Blu-ray 3D Disc and TrueTheater 3D playback (through DVI or HDMI connection), make sure the graphics card is HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) compatible. If your graphics card is not HDCP-compliant but with a DVI connector, you can use a DVI-to-VGA converter (or cable) to output the video in analog format. To determine whether your graphics card is HDCP-compliant, please visit the hardware manufacturer's Web site.
