First I thought "Another bold statement" since a thread like this tends to pop up with each driver update, but looking through the release notes there maybe hope with this release : -

  • Switching from h.264 to MPEG2 video titles no longer results in the operating system intermittently failing to respond
  • Playing VC1 video clips no longer results in green corruption being noticed in the player window
  • Enabling BOB de-interlacing no longer results in a green line being noticed on the bottom of the playback window when playing a 1080i clip
  • Playing a standard definition DVD using the Windows Media Player no longer results in the player window flashing when closed captioning is enabled
  • Playing a DVD title using the PowerDVD player no longer results in the PowerDVD player failing to respond when DXVA is disabled, closed captioning is enabled and the user is fast forwarding the DVD title anywhere from 4x to 32x

Let us hope the Holy Grail has been found!!!

These latest drivers have fixed the switching of channels problem i had when h/w acceleration was enabled in powerdvd 8 patch. I never had the green problem with poweredvd and my hd4850. I still have the green problem with ArcSoft h.264 codec when h/w acceleration is enabled.

I am on 780G Mobo / Onboard ATI HD3200 / XP Pro SP2 / MP RC2 / PDVD8 Ultra build 2021

Tried Catalyst 8.8 Suite with hardware accleration.  Initially i thought all was ok.  But after 15minutes of watching TV3 i get picture glitches and the display gets stuck on a endless half second loop.  I had the same problem with the beta 8.8 drivers.  It does remove the green blockiness from C4/TVNZ6+7 but unfortunately it is not stable, so i don't recommend upgrading at this stage, and still recommend the display driver from the gigabyte website combined with coreAVC for live TV.

HTPC: Intel i3-2100 / 12GB RAM / AMD HD7750 / 480 GB SSD / 58TB Storage / MediaPortal / MadVR / Win10
AVR: Pioneer Elite SC-LX87 220W 9.2 Ch AVR
Speakers: Wharfedale Jade 7 Fronts / Jade 2c Center / Jade 5 Rears
Subs: iNuke 3000dsp 3000W proamp with 4x 15" JBL Sealed Subs
Display: Samsung 60" UA60H6400 LCD TV
Accessories: Gefen HDMI Detective with splitter

You can't get hardware acceleration with coreAVC anyway. I always got good result with coreAVC and any version of ccc.
