Well I am trying to get Hardware acceleration to work in mediaportal. I have got a Dell XPS M1330, 2.5GHz Dual, 4GB Ram, 250GB HDD. Also AVerMedia Hybrid, and a GeForce 8400M GS (latest drivers according to Windows Update). Also using the PowerDVD Codec (Just trial version, want to get it to work before $$).
I have been using the CoreAVC codec, but does not support Hardware Acceleration so CPU has been 80% ish watching 1,2,3
First is this card fully capable of Hardware Acceleration for all the channels (esp 1,2,3) Because at this stage, I am a able to watch all but the "true" HD channels (1,2,3 and Freeview | HD). At this stage the audio on these channels is fine, but the video is not even close to being in sinc and is very slow (would put is at about 10FPS sort of stuff).
This happens when I have set it to EVR in MediaPortal.
When I set the settings to VRM9 I can't see the image at all (with new drivers, old drivers work fine) but CPU usage is about 25% for C4 etc, and 60% for TV3.
So am I going to have to go back to the old drivers and use VRM9, or is there some way to get EVR working for TV1,2,3 which would be great.
Thanks for all the help!,
P.S Have Windows Vista Business SP1
