So little background of what system i have here... I have a desktop pc setup, that i also run hdmi to my denon receiver and then to my projector ( Sony HW50ES )
i7 OCed to 4500mhz
I have a gaming rig that can more than handle video playback. When i play things on my LCD monitor, everything is fine. When i try to play anything on my 2nd monitor ( the projector) ( through the Denon or direct HDMI to projector ) the film stutters every 10 - 15 sec for breif moment then catchs up... friends cannot even notice it but i definitely do.
I am curious if this is a driver problem, codec problem, or a setting on my projector? oddly enough if i set film mode from auto 1 to auto 2, it fixes most of this, but still basiucally makes it not as bad, the issue is still there.
odd thing is, it ONLY seems to happen now when in the HTPC setup and on SOME DVR content ( not all ) from my fios STB
Fios cable live = fine
PS3 video playback = fine
HTPC playback = NOT FINE
if anyone has seen this issue or has any other suggestions PLEASE let me know becuase this is driving me nuts. I just bought all new high speed HDMI cables just incase and already hooked them up.
I also tried DVI > HDMI from the video card, same issue. I have the monitor set to 60hz on the PC side, i have tried manually changing that to 59, 24, 23hz, nothing fixes it.
I have tried the following media players all with the same result:
