just got a new pc for htpc,
being lazy and not using a GFX card, just using cpu decoding ...
Everything seems to look okay,
I've tried both coreavc & powerdvd codecs, no difference ....
i get lots of skipping (its unwatchable ... full frames for a few seconds ... then drops out for 10+s) ... i think frames are being dropped but not sure, as same results in live tv and recorded (no matter where i record / play (tried gbpvr /mediaportal))
I don't think its the signal as audio plays fine and it reports 60-80% signal quality ... Its not CPU as that sits well under 60%
The one thing i think it may be is my capture card, i'm running a Leadtek DTV1000+ (imported from AU)
I don't really want to have to shell out for a nova500 if i don't have to.
anyone got any hints?
