Has anyone else experienced video decoding issues within Media Center with the ATI 5870? It's hard to explain, but what I'm experiencing is a random blockiness or blurriness as if looking through the warped glass of a bathroom window. It will always correct itself after a few seconds. I believe I've noticed a pattern that it won't correct itself until the scene changes. Sometimes the color will be all screwed up (only in the section where it's messing up) and be all green or all blue, etc.
So far this has been tested to occur on MPEG2 and H.264. It's random during video play, but if I click the Media Center button and again to go back to the video, this issue will occur almost every time.
I've played the same videos in MPC-HC and I'm not having the decoding issue.
I may also be having an issue with DX10. I cannot play Crysis in DX10 in fullscreen mode. My HDTV will say I'm using an unsupported video mode. But if I change Crysis to run in DX9 I can play in fullscreen mode no problem. Crysis is the only DX10 game I have so I can't test if it's all DX10 or just Crysis.
I had some graphic problems at first with my 5870 as well. But it could just be on the desktop even. Blinking white dots. Setting the pixel format to ycbcr 4:2:2 instead of 4:4:4 solved my problem
Maybe it can help you aswell?
Im using windows 7 x64 RTM not RC. And I have now upgraded to the 9.11 beta (the opencl driver). Havent testet 4:4:4 again though.
Crysis is the last game you should try to get fullscreen on a hdtv. It wont go full screen or end up 1080i or 24p. You can select that resolution in windows then scale it to fullscreen. Then change back to 60Hz. When the game launches it will then be fullscreen. But still it wont be 60Hz... 24 frames sucks for games.
