Hi all, Here is what I found working wrt codec etc to improve picture quality, in particular for sports: - Use ATI Avivo codec for MPEG2 - Use Cyberlink PDVD for h264 - Make sure "wait for v-sync" is enabled - Calibrate refresh rate to be a multiple of 25HZ, i.e. 50Hz or 75Hz - Set ffdshow raw filter as post-processor (unfortunatly...

Hi, I added those options. The newest vmr9 settings change the resizing algorithm to take advantage of your underlying video hardware. Your results may vary. Ideally, you should turn on non-square mixing and choose gaussian quad filter. There is currently not any checking to make sure your video card can actually implement the...

My LCD-TV doesn't have a 720 line mode, so I'm not sure if forcing 720p50 is a good idea. Since I had only installed the driver, I took advantage of the situation by installing the complete Catalyst suite 8.9. I have also updated to MP 1.0 RC3. I am starting as close to the default settings and only changing them step by step. So...

MP1 MP2 Leadtek wintv 1000S DE
I think there's a list of the specs of both cards on the leadtek site. From what I remember, there werent any massively significant differences. I use the S, and have no real problems with it. Sometimes MP TV Engine 0.2 seems to have a problem where it says the card is in use, although it isnt, but a restart of MP fixes that...

Analog 4:3 and 16:9 are the same resolution (Such as 720x576 for pal), only displayed differently. I don't think s-video/composite interfaces have aspect ratio information, so there is in fact no way for an analog PVR card (Or especially MP above it) to know the AR.

The MCE Standy Tool ( MST ) could help you with the reinit of the card without using the TVServer3. Got a SkystarHD which is hardwarewise similar to the TT3200, i am using the TT3200 driver for it.

Glad it is working for you now. Just FYI, you should be able to delete the channels you are not interested in within the MP configuration and not see them at all. Depending on how you have things setup you may also need to remove them from your SD lineup too. patrick

This is a common fault with the 0.2x First thing to perform is the following. Make sure you perform multiple scans. One at 7 AM, one at 3PM and one at 9PM. This is so that you pick up the maximum channels that were off-air during the previous scan. Even after the above, you will find you are missing a number of channels...

Iirc, the crop settings are tuner-specific. With that in mind, it should be possible to use multiple tuners to handle the SD / HD channels. With a tuner dedicated to the HD channels, it should be possible to crop those independently of the SD channels. Keep in mind that the ABC HD feed is only 720 though. Hopefully someone with...
