Problems with integrated GF 8300, 0810 and nvidia drivers
« on: May 04, 2010, 12:26:08 pm »
Hi,

Looks like nvidia-195 drviers cause some problems with my integrated GF8300. I made a fresh 0810 installation yesterday. Good news: I was able set 1080p and passed audio via HDMI. Bad news: video jerked and froze and audio was lost time to time (tested it with VDR only). Then I switched to analog audio back. The VDR picture became better but still with problems. With vdpau acceleration it was some delay in playback time to time but the CPU loading was just 6%! Without vdpau (xv) the picture started flickering. Does somebody use successfully GE8300 with vdpau under 0810?

I'm going to check Xine and Mplayer playback tonight and possible re-install previous version of nvidia drivers using installer.

Installed manually NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.42-pkg1.run and it seems it works. Without vdpau acceleration but at least VDR and Xine works. Mplayer still doesn't.
