So I should then select one of the other choices? IIRC there was another UI2 setting to choose from, it is called medium here
Hmm, are there nvidia cards out there that can do Alpha blending/compositing AND tearing free playback?
Well, yes, I have installed my own driver on the system where I did run the lspci command. I took it from my 0810.
Sorry, should have written that. Just thought you needed the version of the card. To get the test system online i have to shutdown my prod system as they use the same network and MD. Only the server is a different PC.Do you need the line from the real 1004 system?
Then I will get it. I will also look at if I am using the right driver.
IIRC (am not at home right now) then "Gforce or TNT2" was already choosen. I did then select VDPAU in the two places "accelleration" and "interlacing". Did a quick reload and also a reboot of the MD. But that did NOT change anything in MythTV. I had to go there and setup "VDPAU normal" manually.
Thanks for clearing things up, it will surely also help the next one having trouble (if the find this thread).
Are there any guidance or HOWTO's in the wiki or elsewhere that tell you what to do if you have a NVidia card in your MD and would like clean nice playback. And the same if you have an Intel/AMD or whatever...
I am just thinking, that I have some trouble getting it online and I have done it before. If we want newbies to get into this they should be guided. Maybe some links on the download page.
If you did not try to install a different driver on 1004 then all I said there about that is irrelevant.
If you do indeed have the nForce selected as video card, and vdpau selected as accel/interlacing options... then... I am a tad confused as to why you are having issues. This USED to occur for me on 810 with a similar chipset... however on 1004 I have no issues. On 810... I had to select Standard as video card... and xv in accel, and high on interlaced. I would be curious if you would play around with THOSE settings and not the compositing, what your results were. Maybe it is related to your tv's odd hz desire.
VDPAU is the only thing that might need tweaking for nVidia only... in an ideal world. Radeon drivers are not going to like compositing AND screensaver... so... I recommend blowing off screen saver. Each nVidia GPU is different too... trying to put together a "what to do" would cause more confusion than anything imo. There is a reason I work off of PCIIDs instead of models. Different PCIIDs of the same model have different capabilities. HOWEVER, if I was to put together a "todo" for your card, it would be what you believe you have done, which isn't working...
I will do ANYTHING I can to get you proper support, and make it work for everyone... but I need the ACTUAL confirmed information from that install/settings.
So play around... make changes... reload your router... and get back to me please. Tell me what works best, using compositing. Your chipset should handle it... I will check your TV thread next to see if you have replied there.
*you didn't. lol.
Thank you JaseP
