wow, big difference! fontengine that shipped with MP 1.2.1 is only 98kb. Not sure what it does. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I am just guessing around until a dev can help. But with such a difference, something seems seriously wrong with your setup.

Are you talking about the CCC settings or the ffdshow one's as well? Either way, I still suspect that, even with all video settings disabled, NV12 and the other colorspaces look slightly different and therefore the only way to get consistent output is to ensure everything outputs in NV12 (as PDVD has to use this for hardware...

I thought I'd try PowerDVD 11 codec as an alternative to the microsoft ones for my HD channels Unforunately on BBC One HD and ITV HD (freesat) they are playing at 25fps progressive scan rather than 50fps interlaced. This makes the whole thing look like a movie rather than TV. Actually it's more like 24.7 so it's a bit stuttery...

Really sorry but I was wrong...: In MP setting>video codecs>MPEG/AC3 audio decoder I set "MPC-MPA audio filter" to get AC3 audio through HDMI (not "MPC-Realaudio codec ", I remembered wrong).

By using the asynchronous USB protocol, the USB device does not depend anymore on the timing from the Computer but you have to implement your own clock at the SPDIF generation. This reduces jitter dramaticly. You will notice a much more easyness and cleaness in the music. If you have some high quality Hifi components the...

just use some tool such as FilMerit to raise the PDVD11 decoders' Merit to prefered. (run the tool as an Administrator) Its original merit is set to low to be of use outside of PowerDVD. I guess Hoborg prefers that you use his codecpack instead of teaching others anything useful.

I think FFDshow used in SAF4 doesnot support DTS core extrect. It should be working in unlocked SAF6. BTW, you can always return back to SAF4 if SA6 will cause any trouble to you.

If you weren't aware of that then you need to be aware that you don't have to use the Cyberlink codecs at all. There are so many good free alternatives. If you have a problem with a specific file or file type then start a thread and ask for help and people will be able to recommend you some codecs that you can try. mm

I'm setting up an XP based HTPC for my brother, that will run at 720x480(or maybe 576)@50i on an old CRT TV. I'm a bit confused by the various options such as Reclock, Mediaportal Audio Renderer, etc. Which would work best on this PC?
