Problems with Full HD video content - stuttering

Hi,
I am following this thread since very long and SAF is a great thing.
But I still have problem with Full HD video content. When playback I have stuttering in video (quite small, but recognizable when having moving landscape or similar).

Here is my setup:
Graphic: ATI Radeon 3200 HD (on board)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H (rev.1.0)
4GB RAM
Windows XP, SP3
ATI CCC 9.5
SAF 4.0 beta9
MP 1.0.2
Codec: PDVD9 DXVA enabled
BIOS setting:
- Graphic using 512 MB
- latest BIOS update already done (version F11 from 2009/09/16)
latest chipset and audio drivers installed


What I have already tried:
In Windows:
- turn DXVA off --> not good
- use codec: MPV or ffdshow --> MPV (not good - no DXVA); ffdshow - same as PDVD9; CoreAVC not working at all
- changed from VMR to EVR --> (as expected) worse
- same effect when starting from Windows Media Player, PDVD8 player, or inside MP
. tested with .mkv's (h265 inside)
. BluRay disk directly
. Apple trailers from internet (.mov) (here I think DXVA is not available) using MyTrailers-Plugin
- VLC player: very strong stuttering - not viewable

in BIOS:
- turned Cool'n'Quied to disabled: no effect
- turned GPU frequency to 700 MHz (additionally to CnQ off): no effect


Shall I also try?
- to increase in BIOS the HT frequency - but to which value?
- to change settings in CCC? right now everything is set to "use application settings". what to change?

additional info:
- playing 720p recorded via MP is no problem at all.
- playing DVD no problem
- DXVA is working as CPU load stays below 30%


I read in many forums my hardware should be capable to playback full HD content without problems. Isn't it?

Can you please help me?

Try old good catalyst 8.5.

Warning!

Do not update QuickTime Alternative to version 3.00!
Your *.MOVSD wil be not longer working after update!


Use older version 2.92 instead.

Hi Hoborg,
Tried CCC 8.5 - same effect.
Going back to 9.5.

Something else in mind what I could try?
You can try 9.10 too, there was some DXVA update acording to changelog.
BTW, what CPU do you have?
CCC 9.1 I tried as well, as it came with the last chipset-update (accidantly). - same effect. Went back to 9.5 - same.

My CPU is:
AMD DualCore, 4850e 2,5GHz
i mean 9.10 not old 9.1.

...i have bad felling you hit limitation of your chipset.
If you have chance to try, test ATI 4550 - i have this card (fanless) and it runs without any issue on my HTPC WinXP based.

This combination of CPU and motherboard is not ok.
You can fix it by replacing the CPU with a HT 3.0 processor or change the GPU.
