Video Error & Shark007 Settings - Page 2

post #31 of 74
1st of all, since you have problems already,
I would not complicate things by choosing dxva decoders - they can fail to decode when the files are 'out of spec'

For M2TS playback in the Microsoft players
SWAP TAB, disable Media Foundation / disable Microsoft Audio decoder (to allow bitstreaming)
MPG~MP4 TAB, select the bluray splitter



maybe this command will help in your situation.
Open a command prompt using 'Run as administrator', type the following, and then press enter
Lodctr /r

Cool. Thanks for that quick reply. What is in the 2.7.8 release for which I just got a notification?

Before running something at the command prompt, what does the command do?

using the command" Lodctr /r " information source
read the 8th post down

Version 278, other than updated codecs, I simplified Subtitle renderer choices.
When a user makes a selection on the H264 TAB, the proper subtitle render is auto-selected and setup for use.

Thanks again.

So that is a registry repair command. I better back up my registry first...

Before doing that (looks to be XP command but probably functional in Win7) I am going to make the changes to my Shark007 selections and see what that provides.

I ran the command on my own Windows 7 system before suggesting you use it. It completely successfully.

Just the same, I'm trying to take this one step at a a time. I just made the changes in both the 32bit and 64bit versions as both admin and user and am going to reboot the HTPC right now. BRB.

Well that didn't do much so here goes with Lodctr /r.

edit: It briefly displayed the command window and then went back to windows.

I think that is what it said when it opened buy it was so fast I couldn't read, nevermind capture, it.

So now another reboot and then we'll see what's up.

Well the results are just about the same. I think that I've broken WMC at this point and will be doing a clean install but right now I just want to watch TV for a while.

So I finally got around to the format and re-install of Windows 7 (and all updates, including SP1) as well as mobo drivers, the Hauppuage! WMC drivers and the Shark007 codec pack with the settings recommended previously in this post. I have not installed WinTV 7.2 from Hauppauge! or any other video playback software.

The TV tuner is working without an issue except that it is not pulling in channels [7.x(abc), 9.x(local), 11.x(local), 13.x(local) and many other higher channels] that the WinTV 7.2 software was tuning before. I don't know if this is a function of the weather (raining today) or WMC just not tuning in these channels.

Also, WMC is not playing back blu-ray file structure including m2ts files but is giving me errors about not having the appropriate player. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that the Gabest splitter took care of this, no? Or do I have to get PowerDVD-HD or something?

Thanks for any assistance in advance.

Media Center is hardlocked (by Microsoft) to disallow BD strutured playback.
Remove the M2ts from the BD structered directories and be sure to select FFDshow for WVC1 on the SWAP TAB

By remove do you mean transcode to mkv or x264? The file is 0000.m2ts (from memory) in the STREAM directory.

I think I am using FFDshow for WVC1 but an not sure because right now I am at work and aren't remoting into my HTPC from work (yet!). I'll check when I get home later. Thanks!

remove = physically take the m2ts file OUT OF the BD structured folders.

Okay, but then what will be used for playback? The 0000.m2ts file is what was actually playing back using WinTV 7.2 before.
post #48 of 74
WMP or Media Center

Okay. So I just tried that on my desktop using WMP and it worked fine although I could not check the audio output. When I tried it on my HTPC it was a no go. I have no particular codecs installed on my desktop unless VLC had the right one that WMP picked up on.

I'll post my Shark Codec settings in a bit.

Damn, so I finally got the video stream playing. I am getting stutter free OTA HDTV and streaming video. The movie I am using to test is Robin Hood which I know to have the full dts-HD/MA track but I am only getting stereo output in WMC.

Here are my current settings:

UPDATE:

I went into the Sound settings in Windows control panel and set my Denon Receiver to 7.1 and disabled the Dvix media foundation splitter in the MKV TAB in Shark 007. So now I am getting Multi-Channel in for my Denon which is LPCM with the HTPC doing the decoding but why is the pass-through bitstreaming not working? It seems that I have all the settings correct for that.
post #53 of 74
You may have it set, but in all those screenshots I don't see your FFDShow Audio config - do you have passthrough selected for all formats on the Output section?
post #54 of 74

Here's my settings (The link was only available in the 32bit Shark007 application):



I changed the compatibility to not be PCM in ffdshow settings
and changed it to try all formats. Then I rebooted.

Still no bitstreaming?
post #55 of 74
I'm running 32 bit Win7 so can't confirm if there's a separate x64 FFDshow audio config. Can you run it manually? Or barring that, create a icon for it by copying the ffdaudio config for 32bit and changing the path to point to the x64 version?

sammy, open the 64bit settings app, go to the config tab, in the center is a 'dropdown list' . . .
click the words, 'Configuration Items'

Thanks, It'll be later today before I get to check that but at least now I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on this.

Well that didn't change anything but I noticed that dts was not enabled in the ffdshow settings. When I tried to enable it, the ffdshow configurator wanted to change all codecs to libavcodec so I cancelled it. Here's a screen shot:

I am currently downloading the new shark007 codec pack. Will I need to re-configure again or will the current settings be carried over?

Also, in the x64 pack there's an option to use either 32 bit (default) or 64 bit WMP. I don't remember checking it, but the 64 bit WMP is checked. Should that be changed to 32 bit WMP?

Bump (off the second page).

Now that I've got the video working this has sort of morphed into a bitstreaming issue.
