I've been fiddling around trying to set up XBMC as my main media center on my new HTPC.
My setup is as follows:
Intel i3 4670 chip
Windows 7 Home Premium
8 GB RAM
The issue I keep having is "tearing" during playback of all video - be it MKV files that I've ripped myself from my DVD collection or videos played via XBMC using any of the add-ons. The "tearing" I am referring to is a horizontal line where it seems that the top of the picture is "torn" from the bottom for a brief period of time. This happens at any time but moreso with panning shots or movement/action. I've adjusted video and audio settings and it hasn't made any difference. I've even tried a different video driver (several, actually) and it makes no difference.
Just out of curiosity, I downloaded VLC player and all of my MKV files played perfectly without any tearing....it was rock solid.
I further experimented and actually uninstalled Frodo and installed Eden instead. Same tearing issue.
Does anyone know what's going on? Is this issue "fixable"?
Thanks in advance!
I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.
