Mcraenz: I've come up with a problem with my new DVB-T HTPC. Sometimes the video stream gets it self into a loop of about 1/2 a second of corrupted video. Audio keeps playing.

Occasionally I see video artifacts when watching TV I presume this is just a signal/interference problem, most of the time the stream just keeps playing when it comes across this little faults.

It seems though that if the courruption is bad enough the stream goes in to this loop. If I turn off HW decoding on the cyberlink PDVD8 codec the problem doesn't occur.

I've confirmed this in graphedit. i.e.

TS-Reader(30sec .ts file with a broken section)---->CyberlinkPDVD---->EVR

With HW decoding turned on graphedit plays the stream till it gets to the bad bit then starts looping. Turn off HW decoding and grahpedit will just skip over or drop the bad frames.

I've tried swapping out the the ts reader to no avail.

I also often see artifacts when changing channels.

I've got the 30 second sample (~45MB) is there anywhere I can upload?

I've seen at least one other post with this problem. I expect if you have a next to perfect signal then the problem won't occur.

Any ideas / confirmations / solutions?

I accidently stumbled upon this old thread.

I have the same problem in XP

H.A. = On, occasionally get stuck in an endless video loop, audio continues, if i hit FFWD/RWD the video/audio continues as normal.

H.A = Off, no problem

What was the solution to this?
