    Recently I've installed MediaPortal on my computer, but after few minutes of using it I've started to have problem with video playback. During playback of .mkv 720p videos my screen is flickering/blinking (I don't know how to call it in english) using VMR9, when the "Exclusive mode" is on (when it's off video is tearing). I've tried to install other video card drivers (currently I'm on latest Forceware drivers), I've tried to reinstall codecs (CoreAVC, Cyberlink, Directshow, etc...), I've tried to change the codecs in MediaPortal configuration, I've tried also to change codecs in configuration to CyberLink and turn on/off DXVA and still nothing. I didn't manage to deal with this problem. Please help!, what can cause those problems ? Any tip how to solve that issue ?

    Ps. HD .mkv videos that are 1080p are working perfectly (strange)
    Ps2. I've tried to play those fickering 720p videos in VideoLan, Media Player Classic / HC , Cinema Player using VMR9 renderless - and it works there flawlessly. Why Media Portal cannot do such so great job with 720p videos ? :(

    I'd really appreciate all of your help and suggestions beacause I've run out of ideas how to fix that.
