Hi All,
Marry Christmas.

I have been using MP for a few years now and just setup my first media / tv computer.|
I have run into a issue with the new Graphics card that I have got for this system specs below:

System: Dell Optiplex GX620, Intel 1gb Ram etc..
OS: XP Pro SP3
ATI Radeon X1300 256mb
Dvico Fusion HDTV DVB-T Plus
When loading the TV the screen is artifacting and pixelation like crazy, also sound drops out..
I have uploaded a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQuOupOcGcQ

This happens on Computer streaming and on the local box. If I turn off the Video card acceleration the problem goes away.
I used to have an Nvidia 8400GS in this system and it didn't cause any problems.
The wired thing that I can't get over it causes the problem remotely and stops when the card has video acceleration turned off..
I can play H264 video's on the local box without a problem.. and if I put the Nvidia card back in it works fine...
I don’t have any spare PCI slots in this system. 1 x PCI-E 16 – ATI card & 1x PCI – Dvico card

Thanks
Dylmax

    Try:
    1. Open Catalyst Control Centre.
    2. Go to advanced view by clicking "view"->"advanced view".
    3. Expand the video section.
    4. Go to the "all settings" section.
    5. Scroll to the bottom and ensure that "enforce smooth video playback" is checked.

    What version of the Catalyst drivers are you using?

    I'm using 10.4. Perhaps you need to upgrade, but first check out the screenshot attached to this post to make sure we're on the same page...

    After upgrading from version 1.24 to 1.26, I could no longer use the MP on one of my computers because it freezes. The task manager showed "stopped". New upgrade - from 1.24 to 1.27. Doesn't freeze that often anymore. But it always happens. Then the MP can no longer be operated. It seems to happen when a video directory is read in...

    So the GT 1030 is ~AU$120 and the GTX 1650 ~AU$260 (based on my local store). Which, surprisingly for Australia, is just about bang-on the conversion rate. :) Cheers.

In MP, transcoding is only done by plugins like MPExtended (to allow low-bandwidth streaming to other devices) - this is not a core part of TV Server...
