    I'd like to know the setup of anybody that has everything working with the HD2400 (or HD2600).
    What codecs are you using and how did you do the setup? Thanks

    Hi
    I was having trouble with my HD2600. It seems that ATI have inconsistent setups with their drivers for the HD2x00 cards. I found a lot of useful info in this thread at AVSforums. Yes it is long, but somewhere in there are some registry hacks to improve performance.

    I've an ATI HD 2400 Pro made by Sapphire. I executed the script listed on the AVS forum link (there's a .vbs file you can download). And installed CCCP (Codec Pack). That's it. No pre- or postprocessing, nothing. Sometimes the image stutters a little bit. I selected VMR9 for videoplayback and chose one of the filtering modes (I think Gaussian), that improved my image big time. I'm now going for a HD2600XT since the HD2400 has a noise problem (which can't be fixed).

    Good stuff the .vbs file on the AVS forum works good!
    Also a fresh install helped!

    Maybe it wil help someone:

    Installed:
    .vbs file on the AVS forum (hack for the HD2X00 card)
    FFDShow
    Halli Media Splitter
    PowerDVD Ultra 7.3
    AC3 Filter
    Latest video driver for my card (HD2400 Pro)
    Updated XP
    Latest drive for my Audiocard
    Latest drivers for motherboard
    Media Portal 0.2.3.0 + SVN

    Settings:
    Video codec: FFDShow
    Audio codec: FFDAudio
    HD codec: PowerDVD

    And now all works great for me! (I did make sure the correct codec were working in MP with GraphEdit and GSpot)
    Let me know if anybody needs some info.
