All my movies/tv shows are stored on another PC that is always on and i use my htpc to play the files over the network.
Since these files are downloaded from the web I would chalk it up to bad encodes but the same "bad" file would play fine when streamed using ps3 media server and my ps3 instead of using my htpc
I also have Live TV on my htpc and ive never seen it happen there. i use the netflix and hulu wmc app and all is fine there also.
i use the i3 igpu, lav filters and mediabrowser for all my mkv's.
What could be causing this on certain files. I have the igpu and wmc refresh rate set to 59, could that be it? my tv is a panny vt25 and my htpc runs through my pioneer 1021 AVR using hdmi
