Ok so I have read through and searched, for hours, have tried several things, but have yet to fix this: My TVNZ picture is jumpy and pixelated, worse on TV2 than TV1 and sometimes affects the TVNZ SD chans as well, mostly U and TVonePlus1 but to a much lesser extent. Problem only occurs in Media Portal, quality fine in WinTV, but that don't do what I need it to!
I have disabled AVG Anti-virus, all non essential services, still bad.
It worked fine originally, but SD chans were all pixely, I know right, wrong way round!! they cleared up after watching for 30-60 secs, but who wants to sit through that! so I had a hunt around, and found that the HW acceleration was off, turned it on (the Intel QuickSync stuff) that solved it! but then then in the morning I noticed the above problem :( tried turning the HW accel off, no effect, on anything so far as i can tell! Even most of the SD chans are still fine.
Any thoughts or suggestions anyone? or perhaps have somewhere I should be posting this rather than this super long thread! I think perhaps we need a specific NZ folder thingy, anyhoo, system deets in the sig below (hopefully, this is my first post!)
Oh and I bought and built it very recently, everything is brand spankers except the WD blue drive, with the intention of dumping SKY as it is more money than I need to be spending to record mainly TVNZ/Mediaworks anyway! Plus I like the idea of watching it on other machines and the other advantages of having an HTPC, I have always wanted to build a new one. I used to use a TV card in a PC eons ago instead of a VCR so I guess that was my first HTPC as I watched everything on it, even SKY, though that's not possible any more ;)
