After watching the forums for a few months I finally got around to downloading and installing 810 alpha; after a few issues downloading python libraries (fixed by rebooting and re-running aptitude update), I've got the system installed and up and running. Overall everything is looking great - all really impressive with the lights turning on and off!
My one issue relates to HD TV playback - SD channels playback smoothly, and HD encoded video stored on the harddrive plays fine too. However, when I switch to HD TV channels the video is very slow and every 2 or 3 frames missing. I'm not sure whether this has been covered before (apologies if covered in the forum already), but I've been running HD channels on my hardware for a year with just MythTV with no problems - is LinuxMCE really resource hungry?
I also tried this with UI2 with and without alphablending - no difference. Like some others on the forum, I also have the problem with the video being scanned around 50-60pixels to the right (overscan?) - I'm running the system into my TV's PC input port and using VGA 1080p @ 60Hz, which didn't sound right when I installed, but displays ok apart from the video overscan.
Has anyone found this problem?
My set-up is:
- AMD64 3200 processor with 2GB RAM
- 2 x Winfast DTV 2000 H tuner cards
- 320Gb hard-drive after fresh LinuxMCE install
- Geforce 3200 video card (I think) outputing to a Bravia 40 inch.
