Hey guys! great thread here! A TON of info...
Sorry if this question has been answered before. I'm having a Ridiculous Time trying to figure out what heck is oigng on with my HTPC.
1.) Motherboard = Asus M4A785TD-V EVO (Socket AM3 only)
2.) CPU = AMD PhenomII x4 C3 revision 965 (3.4ghz)
3.) Ram = 4Gb (2x2gb) Kingston Hyper X 1600Mhz Cas8 1.65v
4.) Hard Drive = Supertalent SDD 16Gb
5.) Optical Drive = LG Super Blu-ray (BD = x10, DVD = x16)
6.) Graphics Card = Onbaord ATI 4200 w/ 1333mhz (128mb/ 32bit) Sideport memory
7.) PSU = BFG 650w Dual 20a 12v rails
1.) PC Monitor (Via D-Sub) ACER 23" 1080p HD Montior (H233H)
2.) HDTV = Samsung 52" LCD 120hz Processing (LN52A650)
I can play Blu-Ray Discs through Power DVD 8 and 10 as well as playing my library of Stored Blu-ray MKV Files through Power DVD 10 or WMP with the CCCP Codec pack.
I get Stuttering on both screens every 3-5 seconds. Doesn't matter if it's only 1 display connected or both. Stuttering = Freeze then unfreeze, freeze then unfreeze, all within a fraction of a second!
I've tried 2 different CPU's (C3 955 and C3 965), Two sets of ram, Two Different SSD's, Two Different Blu-Ray Drives, multiple HDMI cables at different lengths, different PSU's and all of the ports on the HDTV. And 4, yes, 4 different AMD 785G NB chipset Motherboards. 2 Were the same model.
1.) Asus M4A785TD-V EVO
2.) Foxconn CinemaII Deluxe
3.) MSI 785GM-E65 (x2)
My Pioneer BDP-320 plays BR disks perfectly, smooth as hot butter! Is there any reason why my 320 would be better at playing back plu-ray than my HTPC?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I thought that the system palyed fine on my ACER monitor that is a standard 60Hz 1080p HD Monitor UNTIL I connected the System to my Samsung HDTV that has the 120Hz Processing. That made it pop out at me! I then reconnected the 60Hz Monitor and sure enough, it was doing it as well! It' REALLY masked by the 60Hz Motion Blur, but it's there. I have top kind of squint my eye a tad to see it but it's there. When telling you about the 60hz Monitor having this issue, but can visibly see it better when squinting is to prove that it's Not just the HDTV with 120hz Processing that's doing!
