MP1 MP2 Fix for bad video DE
Hi, There are some quite interesting posts on other HTPC forums about this issue. It seems my "jerky" video from timeshifting live TV after doing some FBW/FFW could be related to this particular bug in DX9.0c. However, I don't have this problem when using the internal MPEG2 codec... A word of warning: you might break playback of...

MP1 MP2 Sorting out lipsync DE
Maybe this is a very obvious tip. When trying to sort out lipsync problems with my TFT TV I found that the best program for solving this are gameshows. Find a gameshow where candidates have to answer with just one word. That way it's easy to see if your in sync or not. For my TFT I used the ffdshow delay function to correct...

Still the same problem in 1.3.0. Greek fonts, especially in MP3 tags and CDDB info, are wrong! Will there be any fix in the next releases?

Has anyone managed to get this app to work with the ADS Tech Instant TV DVB-T PCI remote? I think it does the same thing - using a proprietary exe to send keystrokes to the TV app.. I'm not sure though.. (is there another way to get that remote working with MP?)

If you got the radio icons working, then I assume you have worked out the whole thumbs thing already. I don't think it's possible with Messenger at this stage. Would be good if it was though. If I'm wrong, let me know. I would like to set this up too.

Hi Guys - MP currently can't use technologies like Cleartype, well it can but my experiments with it so far haven't proved to be very useful (there are points in the code that can be changed to change the way that the font files are generated). So what do you do to get rid of the harsh edges? Open the font .png files in an...

There is a very simple way to edit out the "lead", "lag" times and commercials out of your recorded DVR-MS files. There is an article on MSDN demonstrating how easy it is to manupulate DVR-MS files. One of the examples is the code for splicing the DVR-MS files. (incorporation of the features in MP ? hint... hint...) link to the...

I bought an Abit VT7 mobo (which has a VIA chipset) for my HTPC and was having exactly the same problem. No matter what I did I couldn't stop it from artifacting. After buying an Asus mobo my problem was fixed. I am still struggling to get a refund from the supplier as the mobo says in it's specs that it would run with my video card.

I was very happy to find that my FusionHDTV DVB-T Lite remote works with MP perfectly! No Girder, no tweaking, nothing... Just download the latest drivers off the DVICO site, FusionRemote 3.2 - also includes a configuration ap, so you can tweak as you like and configure more applications (WinAmp, MCE2005, PowerDVD already included).

Yes, that's the one. And if you want the CyberLink filter to be used, then you need to change the Merits to make the CyberLink one higher - I would suggest you try increasing the CyberLink to, say 0x41000000, rather than reducing the Mpeg2Dec Merit. Sorry, I don't know anything about Gabest.....maybe someone else can advise?

Awaiting a CD ripper plugin, this is how I configured a CD rip solution. The idea is that I want Media Portal to play a CD when I insert one, but I want the CD to be ripped at the same time, so I don't have to use the actual CD again. This is an easy way of digitizing your CD collection. Of course I don't want to be bothered by...
