    Hello,

    Very new to Media Portal, just got it installed. Trying to setup the TV and when it comes to codecs and renders there are so many choices I haven't a clue. I have tried to read up on what codecs are and think I understand but I can't find anything which helps to make a decision. I have listed all the options below I am hoping someone can give some guidance in what to choose. If the only solution is for me to just work through them all trying each one, even guidance on 'grouping's would be some help as obviously there are 1000s of combinations. I do notice that for DD+ Audio Decoder there is nothing displayed, do I need to buy something?

    Cyberlink Video (PDVD 10)
    Cyberlink Video/SP (PDVD 10)
