    Hey Marv,

    On one of my systems, I have IFC set not to autostart.
    It is hooked up to a large projector, and I usually don't need/want correction.

    I have it setup so I can use the IFC snapshot to crop/zoom on demand if needed.
    IFC sometimes seems to turn itself on, it will start auto cropping and zooming itself even tho I have it set not to.

    It seems to be triggered after I use the manual snapshot, if I change the channel it starts auto scanning again?
    I haven't done much testing yet, but it seems this may be the way to reproduce.



    is this a known issue?

    Thanks!

    Hi Bill,

    no its not known here.

    The hint that auto start is active after you snapshotted maybe helps, I'll have a look at.

    Thanks.

    Hi Billy,

    found the auto start bug.

    FYI: Added a patched core/DXUtil for MP 1.1.1 for testing the resize option.

    Hi Marvman

    I tested the version with the resizing option and reduced the capture size down to 25%, but still get random drops every 10 seconds. What actually do you think is the bottleneck on the systems, since I do not have any CPU spikes caused by IFC?

    Just stumbled on a UI-bug:

    I was test 'n benchmarking with a screenshot, and I noticed that if I move the slider (from single black bar height) I get good results, (black bars detected when at 6.0% and no bars detected when at 7.0%).
    So, if I slide it to 6.0% and hit "test your screenshot", it detects bars, when I slide it to 7.0 it doesn't. But after that, when I type 6.0 in the spinedit it doesn't detect the bars (and neither if I use the spin-buttons to put it to 6.0), so in those cases it seems to use other values than it displays. (Maybe some onchange events not correctly set?)

    Regular frame drop on HD

    Hi Marvman,

    In the course of migrating my current XP system to Win7 Pro, I discovered a flaw in connection with IFC (2.0.2) and HD channels:

    When IFC is activated, HD channels drop exactly one frame about every 6 seconds (as can be seen with Shft-1).
    • The frame drop disappears when IFC is deactivated
    • No problem with SD channels
    • Activating/deactivating the HD support in the IFC config has no influence
    • No frame drops if IFC is run in windowed mode
    Any idea where this could be coming from?

    EDIT: I changed the scan intervall from its 3500 standard to 7000 - and the effect is gone!? I then changed the interval back to 3500, but no further frame drop occured since then

    Regards, HTPC_Sourcer

    Sorry, I had no time to test with latest svn, I think the plugin compatibility check kills the latest version. But I'll will build one and when I have more time I'll upload the sources to a public svn or git repository
