Be interested to see if you have conflict issues on the Blu-Ray Drive

My retailer has agreed to swap my 690 board for the 780, since the graphics card on the 690 is insufficient for Blu-Ray

That said, the Intel G35 boards seem to have better feedback than the 780s

So Far the blu-ray drive is working ok, no problems encountered yet.

What software for playing blu-ray?

Are you getting 7.1 audio downsampled to 16bit/48Hz?

At the moment I'm using the SW that came with the drive Cyberlink powerDVD but I believe this version is only 2ch :angry:

I only got it all going Friday and haven't really had much time to play with it hopefully more tonight.

Currently setting up the software side of my HTPC, looking at purchasing anyDVD HD currently 20% off for easter and they have also cracked BD+

Yeah its 2 channel - I am pretty sure you can upgrade to Power DVD Ultra from that version - US$70 for upgrade. Although this software has the downsampling 'bug' which Cyberlink have said they will fix.....

How much is ANYDVD HD? Have you checked whether it downsamples HD audio? I am pretty sure it does
