I've read a few threads on here, but still feel a little lost. So, if someone has asked this question before, plz don't jump on me too hard. I simply ask because after searching the forum I'm still unclear about a few things. To make a long story short, I'm getting a new tv (specifically the Panasonic ST60). My old tv was 60hz and pretty old, so I never worried about getting the best picture out of my HTPC. For ease of use, I simply used VLC most of the time. However, with my new tv, I want to get the best picture quality that I possibly can. My setup is as follows.
Intel Core 2 Quad Processor
NTSC tv tuner
Radeon HD 4550
For movies, I'll either watch a rip from mediabrowser (I rip some of my most watched movies onto my file server), but I also use my BluRay drive too watch movies as well. So my question is, what do you think will be my best bet for playback? As of now, I'm thinking MPC-HC (I like the auto reclock feature), but I'm open to suggestions. What do you all think I should use as my playback software? Or, do you have any good guides that I should read?
