    Does anyone know of a decoder package available that will enable blu-ray
    support for Windows Media Center?

    I currently have to use PowerDVD to play blu-ray, but I really much prefer
    Media Center since I use it for everything else.

    Windows Media Center can play back any file type recognized by Windows
    Media Player,
    not more or less. The best codec pack in my opinion is the K-Lite Mega
    Codec pack.
    If installed, both players will support Blu-ray and HD-DVD rips in mkv
    file format (this is a container format, also called matroska video).
    Windos Media Player 11 is not capable of
    handling BD discs and therefore no codec pack can make the Media
    Center support it
    so far. You can only use Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra, the latest version
    of Nero ShowTime with blu-ray plugin and Corel WimDVD.
