Have installed the AMD64 DVD beta3 on an Abit AN-M2HD - 5200+, 2GB RAM, uses the 630a and 7050PV nVidia chipset
1. in 720p and 1080p video is jerky, even the flickr images do not scroll smoothly, plus there is a tear half way down the screen. Yes, its with alpha blending, but I heard that since Beta2, especially in 720p this was smooth now. But even Flickr images??!! Connected using HDMI to DVI, but that shouldn't make any diff. This mobo should have more than enough grunt shouldn't it?
I have gone to the config in the admin page - video card was set to Standard Video Card, and acceleration to xv. I understand that 0710 has all the new nVidia drivers as of Dec07.... anyway, I switched it to GeForce or TNT2, and chose opengl, and rebooted. Same issue. Pretty much guessing on these options.... any suggestions? (Totallymaxed?
2. I chose VDR during the setup (I'm in a DVB area), but Sarah didn't detect my Nova T500. In the same screen as above, the PVR is set to None. Dropping it down, there is no option for Nova T500.... what should I choose? Shouldn't it have detected it automatically?
3. CSS installed and working fine for playing DVD - tried to rip a DVD, and it just comes back straight away as failed, no explanation. Only just tried this, haven't played around, so no biggy yet - main thing is getting the video smooth and stop the flickering (with vertical sync) - BTW, I set the BIOS to 256MB ( the max ) for shared memory...
