I think that I started with Jinc 3 Taps, but didn't have the anti-ringing enabled. I checked that box. I also set the downscale to the Catmull-ROM. Smooth motion was already set to that as well.
Still getting about 1 dropped and 1 repeated frame every 10-12 seconds and it is noticeable when watching a movie. I then went into my video card settings and turned off pretty much every video enhancement option. I figured MadVR would just manage it. It was maybe a touch worse, but certainly not better.
I also in the mix updated MBT to the latest and noticed that under the options you can now also select hardware acceleration. I turned that on as well to DVXA2 COPYBACK since that is what I was told to set in LAV.
I am going to copy a MKV file of a known stutter/judder movie (Fast and Furious 6) to the HTPC. I am going to play it both locally as well as over the gigabit network, but outside of MBT and see if I can get something to behave differently. I need to eliminate some variable since there are a LOT of variables right now.
EDIT: OK that test failed. The only thing that I had that would play the MKV was Total Media Theater 6, but without any codecs installed and such, I was getting video tearing of the image, and nothing was kicking off MadVR so I between the two I couldn't see if frames were being dropped or duplicated.
I tested my network speed though and I am able to copy a file from my media server to the HTPC at a minimum of 101MB/s (808 megabit/s) and many times it would go up to around 110MB/s in my short 2 minute test. So I am getting good throughput on the network from the server.
Just stumped again.
