I've found that the AudioScrobbler struggles to correctly identify artists if the name of the band ends in a number. This happens both for grabbing artwork of the artist and reporting playing of tracks to last.fm. For example, "Alabama 3" gets reported as "Alabama" and "Spacemen 3" as "Spacemen". In each case, the truncated name is the name of a different band.

Any ideas?

Thanks beamland :) Unless you had previously saved those settings, the values that were shown were not necessarily the ones that MP was using. In other words, it might have shown MP Audio Renderer when you first loaded configuration... but that doesn't mean MP was using the MP Audio Renderer before that time. Only logs could have...

Okay. Keep in mind that the Cyberlink codec has a property page too, and I believe it has deinterlacing settings (like LAV). To view/configure, click the screwdriver/spanner button next to the codec selection (as usual with LAV and any other codec). MP also has a deinterlacing setting for TV...
