    Re: Scrolling

    That new core.dll file really helped. The difference is night and day. Very smooth scrolling now.

    I'll let you know if I run into any problems.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Re: MediaPortal Core Patch to ease scrolling issue

    Hi Armandp,
    Thank you for putting so much effort into finding the root of this problem! Much appreciated.
    I have a question and a request.

    -Is the 1.1.0RC1 core.dll supplied by you the exact version after installing the clean MP1.1RC1? Or is the DXVA Patch from -Manfred- included?

    -If it is not, would you be willing to patch that core.dll as well for me?
    The patched core.dll from -Manfred- improves playback a LOT for me. Personally I would not like to sacrifice good picture quality in movies for improved scrollingspeed (at the moment). So I really really hope you are willing to do this for me. (You 'could' even PM me the dll if you dont want it publicly available. Im open for any solution. :) )

    See this thread for AVI/DXVA fixed core.dll details.

    Thank you again! :D

    AW: Scrolling

    when you guys talk about scrolling, does this include entering the detail view of a movie and the go back to the list? because compared to the 0.7.x version, that's what takes a lot longer for me...

    Re: Scrolling

    Hi team,

    I gave your new dll a try and backup the other one. I suspect the fix from manfred is inside it. The movie performance looks to be okay, although I haven't watched more than 3 minutes continuously of several movies.

    As to give feedback about the fix YOU added for moving pictures.... Speed is INSANE compared the previous dll. Text flies across the screen now. Wonderfull!!! I think you are already ~80-90% towards the perfect snappy feeling with this dll. THANKS!!!

    btw, this is on a Athlon X2 2350BE (1.8ghz) with 2gb ram and ssd drive.

    Re: Scrolling

    What SSD drive is it? There have been a lot of problems with older controller chips (especially JMicron ones), that could add considerable delays, causing 'stutter' behaviour. To verify this, download HDTune Pro Trial and run the IOPs test (doesn't exist in the free version, but trial works fine to get the results).

    You are looking for something like the attached results. I added screenshot results on Kingston 40GB SSD (with Intel controller) and a Western Digital 640GB HDD. Some bad SSD controllers can end up with results worse then a HDD, even with sequential transfer speeds being much fast.

    Re: MediaPortal Core Patch to ease scrolling issue

    Your fixes not only improves scrolling, but also gives significant improvements for video playback due to lower CPU usage. Thanks to this and other fixes video/TV playback will be improved a lot in RC2.

    Re: Scrolling

    also have a 30gig vertex and had big problems with scrolling speed, this new core fixed it on both my desktop (with intel postville) and my main htpc (vertex). My desktop is even better performer (Intel E8400) but my HTPC is no budget system either (check my system specs for that)


    Not sure why this happened but I ended up with a blank mediaportal.exe.config on my main htpc somehow. No conclusive testing done by me yet, I was upgrading some other stuff at the same time so could be related to some other install.
