Hey guys and greetings from germany,
i have a problem with my HTPC and the reason why I signed into this forum is a post I found after a google research on my problem. As I tried to find help in several forums with bad luck I decided to ask someone who actually has my CPU working.
To my problem:
I have got a HTPC (~1 year) with the following hardware:
- AMD A6-3500
- ASRock A75M-HVS
- 4 GB RAM
- no seperate GPU
- LiteON IHOS104
and the system worked out fine for me. When I built this PC last year I searched for a CPU which is able to play 3DBD and due to several postings I bought the A6.
Last week I got a new LCD (LG 55LM620S) which is able to play 3D (passive). And this is where my problem starts
Yesterday I rented a 3D BluRay and wanted to play it with PowerDVD12 and my CPU usage goes up to 100%. Hardware acceleration is activated as it says in the settings.
My first guess was, that the CPU is not strong enough for the BluRay playback, but I have a .mkv video of Avatar in 3D and I played it with the MPC-HC and the K-Lite Codes Package. It works just fine with a CPU usage of ~20 - 30%. Then I found the following post via google:

- BR 3D Hardware acceleration Off: ~85%
- 1080p24 2D->3D conversion: ~75%
Triple core @2.1GHz is a bit weak for 2D->3D conversion (I would like to see CPU usage
So i guess there must be a possibility for me to get the BD's running and I would be glad if someone (maybe Renethx
) could help me with this problem.
Maybe there are some special drivers or settings I missed to install.
Sorry for my english, I hope my little story is understandable
