Try the latest graphics card drivers - this has something to do with copy protection.

If possible, post the exact wording of the error message.

this is macrovision at play, basically coded into your machine and you can't get around it (legally).

no, all you have to do is update the power dvd software, look for an option within the software to update it.

also download the latest driver for your graphics card.

Power dvd's response "Error Code: "F54564F5" - The DVD Forum requested all DVD player developers (hardware or software) to protect analog output (TV-OUT) by MacroVision. Therefore we believe that your problem may be from one of the two reasons below:
1. When the MacroVision chipset, located in your VGA card, detects the electric equipment which is connected when the TV power is on, it will interfere with the TV-OUT function.
Our suggestion: Please turn the electric equipment power off which is connected to your TV.
2. There are display cards in the market with a built-in TV-OUT function and are not approved by MacroVision. Therefore, a DVD software decoder, like PowerDVD, is forced to shut down the TV- OUT function to prevent any recording.
Our suggestion: Please download the latest driver for your VGA card. If it still doesn't work, please contact your VGA card vendor or find a VGA card approved by MacroVision. Then you can watch DVD via the TV-OUT function.
