Can't be of any help there. I tend to use Intel's built-in graphics which have for the most part been trouble free. Outside of Adaptive Contrast Enhancement. I presume you have the latest drivers...

First I would try different/shorter cables. If that doesn't work it's definitely a handshaking issue which would appear to be between the HTPC and receiver.

I would remove the video card's driver...

Nowadays I think the consensus is a hybrid is the way to go. Such as the Chromebox, NUC, etc. They offer the relative power of a HTPC at the pricing of a standalone player. Today's integrated...

I agree it wasn't stellar. From the previews it was declared the "remake" was virtually identical scene after scene to the original. To the point they were hunting for differences to point out. With...

My take after reading the forums for several years is there will never be enough storage for x many. They are simply hoarders and the process of collecting and storing such data is the real "thrill"...

I thought the same and actually paused the episode to see how many minutes were left. Which was a pretty big clue another shoe was about to fall.

Now I haven't (nor will I) see the BBC version...

As much as the Chromebox can be used as a standalone device it's still a computer (at heart) and as such if you want to get the most out of it you have to dig some. There are simply too many options...

I would probably disable one Add-on at a time and see if makes any difference. Once all of them are disabled and it still performs "funny" you could try Restore to Defaults under OpenELEC System. If...

The file isn't created when installing OpenELEC. So you have to create it from scratch (not copy the default file, edit it and move it to the new directory). Fairly rough... don't hold me to every...

I agree the episode was a (big) step up. Almost across the board the actors owned their characters to a larger degree.
