Hi


I am unable to watch TV3 1080i captures under Windows 7.  I have installed the Cyberlink codec I was using under XP and enabled DXVA.  From what I can tell in Windows 7, I must use EVR renderer to get DXVA.  But doing that results in jerky slow video.  Using VMR9 results in smooth video with high CPU Usage (no DXVA).  Under Windows XP I was able to watch the same files Ok with DXVA giving 5% cpu usage.  Even with DXVA on under Windows 7 I am seeing 21% CPU.


Card is NVIDIA 8600GT with 191.07 drivers.  Card is capable of playing the clips accelerated as they worked fine in Windows XP and also work fine in Linux.

You should not be using any additional codecs in Windows 7. It has what it needs built in, I think you may be screwing things up by trying to use the Cyberlink codec?

Where are the recordings coming from?

Hi

The recordings were from DVBViewer DVB-T. I removed the codec and have gone back to the MS DVD DTV codec and it seems better, although sometimes it is still slow and I have to close the media player and reopen it, then it seems ok. It is almost like the video card is going into a power save mode or something and not coming out of it quickly enough, although I didn't think desktop ones did that.

Seeking also seems a bit slow and results in flashing to black a couple of times before playing, but I can live with that.
