Trouble playing DVD's after running AV Wizard
« on: December 04, 2009, 08:45:57 pm »
I have a fresh install of 810 Beta2.  I set everything up on the VGA output at 1024x768@70.  I have copied over several DVD .iso's (not ripped with LinuxMCE).  Every one of them played great over the VGA output.
I took the system home, hooked it up to the TV and ran the AV Wizard changing to a custom 1360x768@70 over HDMI, UI2 looks great. Problem is that when I play any of the DVD's, it freezes with a black screen, and the DCErouter will reload after a few minutes. I re-ran the setup wizard again, same thing.  If I run the AV Wizard and change back to VGA 1024x768@70 again the DVD's will play again.

I followed this article to get the custom resolution working http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Custom_Display_Resolutions. I'm wondering if anyone know what other config files I should be looking at and if there are any log files I should check. Thanks!

Just curious, why are you running this resolution and refresh rate? What do you have it connected to (monitor, LCD)? If your running an LCD and using HDMI, why not use 1080p or 720p for the resolution? The resolution you are using may not be compatible with your display.

My TV's native resolution is 1360x768. I tried 60Hz refresh, same result.

The reason I ask is because you state that when you connect with VGA you don't have an issue and was wondering if it is the custom resolution that is giving you issues. Have you tried using 1080 or 720 resolution yet?
