    Just wondering if other people are still seeing this issue? I'm still using VMR9 as a workaround which isn't ideal in Win7 but gives me no dropped frames. With EVR I still have problems.

    Hi,

    What screen resolution are you using? The intel G45 graphics are probably a bit under-powered, so that could well be your problem. MediaPortal needs reasonably powerful graphics to do all it does, so you might find that a file that plays okay in windows media player does not work as smoothly in mediaportal.

    I'd advise you to get a dedicated graphics card, maybe geforce220 or similar.

    If you are still having problems and are using RC6, it is worth posting in the RC3-RC6 area of the forum, with logs of course.

    Best wishes,

    Mark

    Hi, I'm using 1920x1080. I didn't think the G45 was under-powered, that's a bit disappointing.

    Guess I need to throw yet more money at the HTPC, I suppose another 100 quid won't hurt in the grand scheme of things! ;)

    Maybe someone else has benchmark figures. I may be giving you incorrect information. I agree that this whole HTPC business is a bit expensive.

    Which part of Wales are you in?

    Yeah, I think I'll try and find some benchmarks to compare with Nvidia and ATI, could be interesting. I'm in sunny mid-Wales :)
