I've been using a PS3 for nearly 2 years now but last week I bought an internal BD drive for my PC (Samsung SH-B123) for ripping/editing and region-coding reasons. My problem is that the quality is not as good as my PS3's. Discs which are faultless on my PS3, on my PC they produce a variety of problems.
I've tried Totalmedia Theatre 5, PowerDVD 12, KMplayer (direct stream playback), Media PlAYER Classic Home Cinema, VLC. Nothing. I'm even considering a format to reset everything.
I have the latest nVidia drivers for my card (GeForce GTS 450), I use an HDMI cable which is connect to my Samsung TV (LE32C350F).
I've been looking all over the net for a solution, I tried different decoders/renderers/whatever. I just ended up getting a headache, losing my sleep and my enthusiasm. Any help is much appreciated!
And just a quick question, will my PC blu-ray playback ever be as good as it is on my PS3?
I can't post screenshots yet, sorry
