Odd thing I have noticed. When hooked directly to a small 1080p Samsung TV via HDMI and no bit streamed audio), I can play 1080p MKV's either windowed or exclusive with no dropped frames. When I hook the HTPC up to my big Samsung via my Denon 3311CI (HDMI again, but I have bit streaming turned on), I get pretty bad stuttering until it kicks over into exclusive mode.
This has happened with either a GTS450 or Radeon 6570 video card, so it seems to be something in MC16. I will try turning off bit streaming on the big TV/AVR setup to see if that changes anything.
Does this sound normal?
Fiddled a little bit with the Radeon Catalyst video PP settings, and have a picture the equal (maybe a hair sharper) than by Oppo BDP-83 with blu-ray rips, so I'm happy.
