    Same problem and some other people have but I guess slightly different :p

    Ok here goes... as the title say HD content is slightly jumpy on some scenes where the camera pan over a landscape and things like that, standard TV and regular movies/DVD plays just fine. I've been trying to read up on the problem and think I understand that it have something to do with screen settings, right?

    So I tried to enable Dynamic Refresh Rate and that sure did get rid of the jumpy stuff during pan, but now I do not get at full picture all over the TV, I get a big black border around the whole TV.

    My default setup is PALHD, 1920x1080 50 hertz and that gives me full image all over the TV and normal media plays fine, drawback is the stutter on HD content... so, what should I and what settings should I make?

    Logfiles and pictures are attached, 01- is my default settings and 02- is the logs with Dynamic Refresh Rate enabled. System specs on profile is updated with correct info.

    This has nothing to do with mediaportal, it's something you have to configure in your display properties (ATI CCC center).

    It's called "Overscan" and has to be set correctly for each frequency. Best way to do this, is when noticing the black bars, goto ccc and adjust overscan (without stopping the video, as this can reset the frequency to a former value)

    You are so simply and perfectly correct, thank you! I have adjusted overscan before but had no idea that I had to change overscan for every frequency - I thought it was a global setting.
    Now everything is perfect :)

    Yes, it is, since a long time. I've used it for some years and still use it. Only the client plugin was not successfully ported to MP2. One glitch is still existing in the server plugin, you need to trigger the search manually. Normally it should run automatic but this did not work, at least not for me... Even without automatic...

    MPExtended (Mobil access) for MP2 only for TV access It's available and properly working since beginning of this year... I've used it until I switched over from DVB-S to SAT>IP in Spring 2018 where such things are no longer necessary at all.
