    Hi. I have a similar situation, except it was working, stopped, and I used a free utility to fix it.

    I have Nero 14 on Win 7 Pro 64-bit. I watched a Blu-ray movie less than 2 weeks ago, no problems. When I tried a different one today, I got the error msg which advised analog output if it was the only option. I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 which has only HDMI and DVI ports. My monitor is a NEC CRT, so I have a DVI-to-analog adapter. I don't think anything changed between the time I watched the last Blu-ray and today.

    I spent an ungodly amount of time searching for solutions and finally found a free utility mentioned on a Dell help forum. It's called Passkey Lite and made by DVDFab--http://www.dvdfab.com/passkey-lite.htm ... quick install and everything's working. There are two for-purchase options, one for DVD, another for Blu-ray, but all you need is the Lite version to fix the problem we're having.

    Took the time to add the info here in case it saves someone else some time.
