Damn. Well do you know of a method to convert the .mkv to a compatible format? Also how do I get the .wmv to HW decode? When I open a 1080p clip in PDVD it is greyed out and CPU usage indicates not using HW Accel..
Thanks for they reply.In PureDVD its greyed. I have been messing with it for the last few hrs. I updated the PureDVD player with the patch from thier site. Finally managed to get it to decode a 1080p H.264 clip. However, no luck with .wmv or .mkv is this possible? Should also mention I am not trying to play a disk. I am trying to play HD media from my HD.
I was hoping someone might be kind enough to help me. My new HTPC is running beautifully, however I am stuck getting HW Acceleration to work. I am running Vista 32, PowerDVD 7.3 and the latest Nvidia drivers (163.75). I also have Purevideo 1.02 installed. Is this even necessary? What am I missing ? Is there some setting I need to setup/change? Here are my specs.
Antec Fusion V2
MSI Gforce 8600GT
Kingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
Here is a few. Forgive the bad PQ.
The Sharp "52 is waiting on my new HTPC, due tomorrow. Will post some new pics when I finish the build.
The other is a closet install in the bedroom I wanted to share.
