I installed this SVN over MP 1.0 and I initially had also the DirectX issue, so I reinstalled the Nov 2008 version and the nag screen was gone.
But, now I have a problem that whenever I play *.mkv files (haven't tried any other yet) and all over sudden I don't have Dolby Digital/DTS sound over my digital output anymore, there is only stereo PCM stuff??? I already checked my audio codecs (both tried MPC and Microsoft) and the audio renderer (i.e. digital out).

Thanks for any help and/or suggestions!

It's probably because of the change discussed here - https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/1-0-final-svn-builds-303/mp-uses-aac-audio-decoder-mkvs-mp4s-54658/ - in other words, it's probably using a different codec which isn't set up for SPDIF pass-through. Use Graphedit or Graphstudio to find out which codec MP is actually using during playback.

Yes, this is exactly what's going on here :mad: MP should not default to the AAC decoder for specific (i.e. mkv) files :confused:, so from my point of view clearly a BUG!!!

Ron
Glad I'm not the only one that thinks this was a ridiculous code change...

Anyhow, I've posted a patch over in the bug thread, first post: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/1-0-final-svn-builds-303/mp-uses-aac-audio-decoder-mkvs-mp4s-54658-post376244/#post376244

    Hey,

    you must reinstall "Backup Settings"
    I have the same problem. How do I reinstall "Backup Settings"?
    Hi,
    No backup should be re-installed here, the reason for this error is a name change on a .dll which installer should have deleted(dunno why it didn't on yours)
    You can delete the bass_wv.dll in MP root folder\MusicPlayer\plugins\audio decoders\" & the error is away.

    Regards

    Sounds like directshow is failing to connect to the VMR9 renderer and opens that another video window (most likely that one is using overlay video renderer, could you check that with GraphEdit?)

    If thats the case, nothing on MP side can be done.
    Hi tourettes,

    I just tried the "Graphedit", connected to "Remote Graph" and hope, that is what you mean.

    First difference: With SVN, I get 2 graphs with the same ID to connect (see "Select with SVN.jpg"). If I press Refresh, however, one of them disappears. Both connections show the same picture.

    Second difference: Without SVN, I get a connection to "Video Mixing Renderer 9", with SVN to "Video Renderer".

    No idea why, and if this causes the problem.

    All tests made with the same directx version (August 2008), only MP Data and MP Program directories were restored via backup.

    :D for looking at it.

    Alfred

    This is beause Video Mixing Renderer 9 fails to initialize. See vrm9.log AND this is because you need proper drivers.

    Well, its most likely not even a fully DX9 compliant card.

    Mobility™ Radeon™ 9000 is the first visual processor to fully support DirectX® 8.1 programmable pixel and vertex shaders on a mobile platform.
    So, drivers alone might not save the day. Earlier it might have worked when some specific DX9 features arent used, but VMR9 usage has changed a little bit in latest SVNs.

    Probably was deleted and then put back by Backupsettings plugin. I guess that everyone with the "Bass problem" used Backupsettings, wich is a supernize plugin, but sometimes shit happens. :cool:

    Hi together

    This SVN works great on my system. Especially the time between switching channels is much much better. From 3 Seconds to 0,5 Seconds. Absolut top!
    Thanks for making a super program better and better.

    Greetings / Cress

    I have to say there is also the "can not delete DVDs from harddrive problem" I copy DVDs via DVDFab completely on the harddrive. With the svn versions i can not delete a copied dvd from harddrive. There is only one file deleted but the folder stays on drive and isn´t deleteable from MP anymore. With the MP 1.0 thats no problem. So switched back again :)
