    Im running MediaPortal 1.1.0.0 BETA with VistaCodecs pack installed, CoreAVC and so on - on a 64-bit Vista installation.



    I've set the MPEG2 codec under "Television" in MP to ffdshow so I can upscale by analogue TV signal. Even so, I can see in GraphEdit that the PowerDVD Video/SP decoder is used instead. How can this happen? Doesn't the settings in MP override the merits?

    Blacklisted? What do you mean?

    I used Radlight Filtter Manager to set the merits for the PowerDVD decoder to DO_NOT_USE and now it works, so I suppose ffdshow can handle MPEG2 without problems?

    I just thought that MP settings would override the merits.
