I have a freeview HD usb thing hooked up to my computer and it's great apart from the annoying playback stutter.

Now i got it to have a better quality picture on my CRT tv, i run a s-video cable from my computer to my tv and watch video through Windows Media Centre. however i don't know why it stutters (well it's not really stutter i guess it's just bad fram rate, very noticable on fast shots), the video plays back fine on my main LCD screen. I've also noticed it's started stuttering on most videos i play back on there, it never used to do that.

Umm any help would be great. i'll post any info if you need it, i'm just not sure what you need. thanks.. W7 btw

What are the specs of your PC, mainly cpu/gpu/ram.
Also, what video codecs are you using?

edge003: ...Geforce 7600GS 512MB

There's your problem.  You need GeForce 8400 or better in order to decode AVC (HD) video in hardware.

It makes a helluva difference compared to software-only solutions like the K-Lite codec.

Because you are running Windows 7, the extra codec packs are no longer needed usually.

Well i bought a pinnacle nanostick prior to xmas and was working average (due to using supplied antenna) yet when i upgraded to Win 7 64 bit it basically was not supported (as no 64 bit support for this one) at first was not a problem as although it would crash it would only do it if i tried changing settings etc which was no big deal. Then I had to reinstall Win 7 due to some annoyingn hard drive issues (two drives died in two days) then it started carshing at startup so pretty much made the nano stick worthless to me.

Anyone recommend a good alternative i do not really want to get a set top box as like not having yet another thing plugged in to the wall hehe. I would obviously need it to be 64 bit compatible and preferrably not as expensive as a set top box.

PC specs are quad core Q8200, 4gb Ram OS Win 7 Ultimate any help would be appreciated.

Folks... "Playback" as a subject doesn't mean anything... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post meaningful subjects.
