No, this is without the patch. The patch does not work with Vista. Vista seems to use packed textures when restoring from minimized. If I use my patch, the textures are missing. I have with Blue3wide skin, 6 packed texture files and this PC has 256MB Nvidia7600 GPU. As you can see in the log, I start with "Main: Video memory left: 505 MB" and after 3 restores I'm out of memory???

Does anyone else have this problem?

    I couldn't reproduce the issue. Minimize / restore was done over 30 times (256 MB GPU here on my dev PC).

    As you have bigger resolution than my dev PC Mediaportal will require bigger amount of memory for font textures.

    Sp, we definately should be reducing the required amount of different font sizes in default skin. Based on quick calculations on 1366x768 resolution has approx 80 MB requirement for the font textures.

    Are you on a Vista setup? If so, is your restore quick or do you have to wait a few seconds?

    this problem was first introduced ::here 2008-12-19::

    There is a great size difference in the font folders xp (1280x1024) versus vista (1360x768):

    Pretty quick I would say. But it shouldn't matter as MP is not designed to be anything else than HTPC application that is always running on the full screen..

    There is a great size difference in the font folders xp (1280x1024) versus vista (1360x768):

    You need to remember that texture size should be always in power of two, so there will be big jumps in the texture sizes between some resolutions.

    Looks like 1366x768 is "triggering" the bigger size to be used (jump from 1024 to 2048). Best way to optimize these would be to use only few different fonts in the skin itself.

    True, but it was quick before, and is still quick in XP. Just wondering if this is a local problem in my PC or a SVN introduced Vista problem. I cannot remember that the font files were so big before.

    I took it to its edge and removed all fonts but one in fonts.xml. Now I could do more restores but eventually the same error came up. soooo... it's not the fonts?

    Hmm, so I raised AGP Aperture size in bios from 32 to 256 and my problems were gone. No more DX errors in the Vista setup. The laptop has no such setting, but works well with the packet texture fix.

    Okay. Keep in mind that the Cyberlink codec has a property page too, and I believe it has deinterlacing settings (like LAV). To view/configure, click the screwdriver/spanner button next to the codec selection (as usual with LAV and any other codec). MP also has a deinterlacing setting for TV...
