    Playing a DVD and navigating the menu varies significantly, depending upon which video decoders are used and which Navigator is used. None of the ones that I have tried work correctly. Here is a summary of the tests that I have done - in each case I have the option "Don't Autoplay, never ask" set and I have used the same DVD for each test:-

    1. Using the MPE2Dec Video Decoder, DVD Navigator & MPEG/AC3/DTS/LPCM Audio Decoder

    Navigation works OK, but the response of the cursor to remote inputs is very slow - typically 1 -> 1.5 seconds.

    Here's the relevant part of the MediaPortal.log file:-

    24/03/2006 8:19:17 PM DVDPlayer: move down
    24/03/2006 8:19:17 PM planescene: PresentSurface() frame:0 enabled:True allowed:False
    24/03/2006 8:19:17 PM EVT: DvdButtonChange: buttons:#16
    24/03/2006 8:19:17 PM 1 VMR9Helper: repaint->playing 1
    24/03/2006 8:19:18 PM 1 VMR9Helper: playing->repaint



    2. Using the DScaler Video Decoder, DVD Navigator & DScaler Audio Decoder

    Can navigate the root-menu OK (no significant delay) but the cursor position indicator is missing on sub-menus, so it is difficult to know which item has been selected. However, if I carefully count the number of key presses, I can "estimate" which menu item is selected, and it is usually correct! So, navigation works, but the current cursor position is unknown.

    Here's the relevant section of the MediaPortal.log file - which looks exactly the same as in point 1. above:-

    24/03/2006 8:10:00 PM DVDPlayer: move down
    24/03/2006 8:10:00 PM planescene: PresentSurface() frame:0 enabled:True allowed:False
    24/03/2006 8:10:00 PM EVT: DvdButtonChange: buttons:#16
    24/03/2006 8:10:00 PM 1 VMR9Helper: repaint->playing 1
    24/03/2006 8:10:01 PM 1 VMR9Helper: playing->repaint



    3. Using the NVIDIA PureVideo Video Decoder, DVD Navigator & NVIDIA Audio Decoder

    Same result as point 2. above.

    4. Using the NVIDIA PureVideo Video Decoder, NVIDIA Navigator & NVIDIA Audio Decoder

    Pressing "Play DVD" brings up a dialogue box with the message

    Unable to play Disc
    Did you insert a Disc?
    OK​

    Here is the section of the MediaPortal.log file:-

    Have you tried the new core.dll from tourettes yet? If the issue is solved by using that one, please reply, so we can close this issue as well.

    Yes, I have tried tourettes version from yesterday (CVS is down today) and there is no change for me - all the above symptoms still exist....:(

    I understand that he has done some more mods, so I am eager to try the latest version, as soon as it is available...:)
