    Hi,



    after reinstalling the latest versions of Media Portal and Moving Pictures and SAF , HD-DVD's can't be played anymore (BRD and DVD just work fine). I just get an "unable to play XXX.evo" message

    You'll find my log files attached

    Thanks in advance

    Maxx

    Hi hoborg,

    first of all, thanks a lot for your help. Just the same used to happen when I had my audio renderer set to default. Still, setting it back this way is a good idea but won't fix my problem.

    Edit : attached, you'll find a graph of MediaPortal trying to render my HD-DVD's main feature.

    I googled some EVO samples, no problem here (until they have VC-1i inside).

    Try this, i added EVO definition.

    Yes, it works fin in graphstudio and plays from within mediaportal (only no sound but we can fix it later). But still no luck with genuine hd dvd's

    I may have found a trail. Playing the same file from my optical player and ripped on my HDD does not give me the same result (tried it with an evo file from "King of California", probably a trailer):
    -from my HDD : unable to play XXX.evo Video codec : VC-1, Audio codec : AC3
    -from the genuine hd dvd : unable to play XXX.evo

    None will be rendered in graphstudio

    PS : I made my tests from within MediaPortal Video player, not Moving Pictures
