    Hi,, I've seen lots of people posting about this from a while ago but nothing recent.
    I can put a DVD in the drive and play with VLC, however under Media portal selecting play disc just brings up a black screen. I think it cant display the menu however I'm not sure if this is the problem or not and I don't know what to do about it.
    I would appreciate some help or a link to point me in the right direction. The wife wants this running to keep the kids entertained



    Running Mediaportal 1.8
    Windows 8.1
    Processor i7 4790K processor
    Video Radeon R7 240 card
    Fresh install
    Codecs are just standard

    Hello and welcome :)

    I think you're possibly right, because I don't see any obvious problem in the log files.
    Have you tried enabling the "turn off DxVA..." option?

    The purpose of that option is to solve problems exactly like this.

    Regards,

    can you check if " Decode DVD" is checked in LavSplitter Vidéo codec
    and try to uncheck auto set decoder.
    also try to select " default direct source" as audio output for DVD

    I tried all these suggestions with no success.
    I eventually solved it through Format C: and re-install.
    A bit extreme but solved the issue (and another issue I was having with this PC)
