I think the d-scaler codec that comes with MP gives me the best quality picture with MyTV. I don't use MP to play DVDs so I don't know anything about that.

    the WinDVD Codecs provided bei Hauppauge, do not have CSS support, so they cannot play CSS protected DVDs. That is the main difference i know about.

    DScaler has a very good deinterlacing.

    The best Codec in picture quality seems currently to be the nVidia Codec. :)

    As I just found out too!

    I tried the player on it's own and it does give a very good picture with DD5.1 via s/pdif. So I thought I'd try the Radlight Filter Manager 1.4 to get it to use the new codec. I ran out of time this morning before I could re-configure MP to use the new codecs. I'll try it later. The Elecard player is on offer at the moment for $18 which seems a small price to pay if it works within the MP interface. Is anyone actually already using this?

    If there are problems, can someone tell me where to get hold of mpeg2dmx.ax? Maybe someone could mail it to me?

    Is empgdmx.ax or empgpdmx.ax a replacement for mpeg2dmx.ax?

    At this moment you can download WinDVD 7.
    I presume that the filter of this version is as good as the 6-version.

    Download the two files from http://home.arcor.de/clarydee/LR301/ and register the filters with the radlight filter manager.
    This site doesn't exist anymore. I get the following

    Thanks mate, that's great!
    your welcome!
    Hello again! I've just tried to un-rar it and I get this message:
    ! M:\New Downloads\Media Portal\mpeg2dmx.rar: CRC failed in mpeg2dmx.ax. The file is corrupt
    ! M:\New Downloads\Media Portal\mpeg2dmx.rar: Unexpected end of archive
    Any chance you can put it up again?

    also, this link is dead too: Cyberlink MPEG Muxer + Dump Filter for DVR-MS -> MPEG conversion:
