    If you do go for an ATI card, I think the 7750 is probably a more future proof buy than the 6450. 6570 is also an option.

    I've borrow a GT610 passive card. Its a bit under powered but I'll see if the sync issues go away. Hopefully it will yield some results. I have noticed straight away the green line on the Shift+1 overlay is flatter. What does the green line show?

    Definately better. Haven't seen any sync issues yet and the card actually performs reasonably well :) There are some more dropped frames than usual but I believe the card is a lower spec so probably to be expected. It also runs quite hot, 60c, and is right next to tuner card which also gets quite hot so that could be having something to do with it. Which is a shame because this CPU runs so cool the CPU fan is stopped half the time.
    Think I'll RMA the GT430, even if they say theres nothing wrong with it and want to charge me, they can keep it, pointless me having it back.

    I was using a 460GTX which was great but pretty noisy, so I switched to a GT430. I had no end of problems with it - it was just way underpowered..

    I am now using this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007H24NLG/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00 and it is great. Silent, and works great. I use only LAV codec for everything, including 1080i.

    HTH![DOUBLEPOST=1355432806][/DOUBLEPOST]Just looked back through the thread, and the GT430 I had problems with is the exact same one that you have. I tried everything - also I was using SSD for timeshift, and a E8500 with 8Gb RAM so wasn't a performance issue.. I changed only the GPU to the 7750 and now all is smooth...

    I'm looking into buying one of those mate. Do you know if its HDMI1.4? Doesn't seem to say on Saphires website. Thinking of a 3D TV later in the year and would like to be ready for it if I do.

    Thanks

    Yes it is.. at least it worked perfectly for 3D for me.. both Bluray and Sky 3D.

    Right before I order this.. I have sync issues again, I have now also tried HDMI video and audio (rather than HDMI + spdif) and its out of sync sometimes so I'm assuming its coming out the PC this way and not other parts of my AV setup screwing things up. It's freaking me out. Now I have a 6 core 3ghz CPU so I am guessing the CPU should be able to deal with all the decoding / deinterlacing without any performance issues.. so I would like to try this to rule out the GPU.

    So my question.. what codec should I use, or what settings can I select in LAV that will force the CPU to do all the work and bypass the graphics card?

    In LAV video decoder config, set Hardware Decoder to 'none' and tick the 'Enable YADIF deinterlacing' box (and select 50p/60p output mode) - that should load up the CPU nicely ;)

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV.

    In December 2017 I acquired a Palit GeForce GTX 1080 DUAL OC for €529 on Alternate.de. It seems it has a similar board layout and I was able to apply the same modifications. However it would probably greatly benefit from an after market heat-sink. Palit did again a good job at providing a minimalist product which can be easily...
