"Improved quality for Hauppauge PVR cards (went from CBR 4mbps to VBR 6-10 mbps, Major difference!) "

I hope You don't hardcode anything like this. I'm using 12Mbit Variable bitrate with GOP sequence for PAL just now to get best quality. I don't want to step back to any worse...
If anything like this is implemented it MUST be a user setting to set.

thanks for Your hard work/gabbe

    Gabbe,

    As of the latest CVS this is not configurable.
    It would be good though - I like yourself use a different setting.

    What I suggest you do is export your registry key for iva15(or iva16) to a file.
    Then when you install 0.1.0.4 and it does not have an option to configure the settings you can at least import that key back easily.

    Moved to Feature Requests.

    Thanks for the answer. If its only the installer that change the settings I'm happy. I can change back after install :)
    A user that use the 4Mbit CBR now will be very happy for the increase i quality (mostly if (s)he have a large display).
    regards /gabbe

    As far as I know MP ALWAYS used the 4Mbit CBR hardcoded, regarding the settings you did.

    Aurora13,

    If you hacked the registry yourself then MP would use those settings.
    By default those registry settings were set to 4Mb by Hauppauge.

    OK, sorry again for not reading the OP with attention. I've just re-read it again and finally figured out how you have things set up. Anyway: you can't use ffdshow for watching TV as it's banned in MP's Tsreader. The Tsreader explicitly checks for ffdshow and rejects it. The first next codec will be used if you set ffdshow in config...

    I am not sure if you figured how to change channels or not. There is a lot of reading involved to set up MP search is your best friend.

    nevermind, I tried the stop-tweak-start thing again and it seems to have worked this time... dgindex is at least showing 7.7mbps most of the time now. Must have done something wrong the first try.

    Just switched back to MP from MCE. Noticing a "banding" interference now, that I didnt seem to notice under MCE. I have an example file but for some reason I cant take a screen shot (or isolate a frame) from a dvr-ms file. It looks almost like you are watching TV through a screen, tilted slightly (5 degrees say) producing a series...
