I realized that in MP Configuration window, under "Direct Show Filters", there is none of the codecs I installed. But when I go to MP Configuration -> television and try to select the codec for H264, the list is quite generous, due to all the codecs I installed so far trying to get one of them to enable HA...
I currently use the Cyberlink PDVD8 codec in the drop-down list for "Television". I tried to register this with regsvr32 "...path...", I got a message saying "success" but the codec still does not show in the "Direct Show Filters" screen.
The manual (http://www.team-mediaportal.com/manual/MediaPortal/Configuration/Filters) shows a screen capture with many other codecs, I have only:
- MPA Decoder
- WinDVD7 Decoder Filters
- Monogram AAC Decoder Settings
- MPV Decoder
- Video Renderer Settings (where you select VMR9 or EVR)
Is this the reason why I do not have a decent CPU load? (I am running on 45-50% on TV3 and 40% on all other channels, good picture quality, occasional jitter / "stepping" effect on TV3 - some days better than others...).
