Hey guys, I've always wanted to use MPC-HC as my default 'everything' player in my HTPC but I just couldn't managed to get them right in the past, but I like to revisit option again.
I've had issues particularly with audio bitstreaming in the past, when LAV wasn't around (or was not the reccomended option). Also, MPC-HC seemed to put out a bit dimmer image compared to TMT5 (and Win7 Media Player).
Here's my setup, and I would really appreciate suggestions/reccomendations on how to optimize my system with MPC-HC as the default player.
HTPC: Win7 64bit, Athlon II X4 630, 8GB RAM, ATI Radeon 5670, 64GB SSD for OS, 4TB for media storage
AVR: Integra DHC 9.9 pre/pro, Emotiva UPA-7 amp
Display: Epson 8100 projector, 90" Gray paint screen
HTPC > AVR > Projector all via HDMI
I have also heard that I need to change a few things in ATI Catalyst Control Panel in order for the HTPC to output the proper image?
Basically, what I like to do is have my HTPC output a 'natural' image without any processing, ehancing, etc, that is not necessary. I am calibrating my Epson 8100 PJ with a meter so I don't want the HTPC to be doing anything that would interfere with this process.
Thanks much everyone!
