PowerDVD 8 Ultra: Enable HD-DVD!
 

Cyberlink has removed HD-DVD playback from their latest version of PowerDVD Ultra. You can now re-enable HD-DVD playback by adding and replacing only seven files. See the screenshot above for further proof!

This little trick works because beta versions of PowerDVD 8 did include HD-DVD playback, and the files in these betas can be used to re-enable HD-DVD playback in the retail version.
