    But it's definitely related to the way MP uses the hardware (I mean uses DirectX), because I cannot reproduce that with other DirectX benchmark / games.

    Ok, just tested an S3 cycle and it did in fact correct the problem on my machine.

    So, it would even more strongly point to the driver side issue as on some machines the S3 is not curing the issue and on some it is.

    Unfortunately I haven't got even a smallest idea how to investigate/debug this issue. During the 3+ years I have been using MP on my HTPC (with different HW configurations) I haven't seen the issue. S3 has been in use only for the last 1,5 years.

    Interesting development here. Ever since I stopped using the PDVD codec for television viewing (MPEG-2) due to trying to find a solution for the 1080i "issue" here, all of the menu animations have been rock solid smooth going on 3 days now. It's probably worth mentioning that I haven't used the PDVD codec for anything else either since 99% of the content on my machine is h.264 that I use ffdshow to decode.

    Curious to hear a developers thoughts on this...

    Maybe it is some Cyberlink process that causes the issue (there are few Cyberlink background tasks running always Those ones should be always removed from the start up group).

    Anyone still having problems with animations lowing down should try latest svn (there has been some work done to address the issue).
