Double that.

I also have a question about JRiver for anyone thats using it. I'm currently using 7MC for tv and my front end (though if jriver starts handling copy once that might not be true). I am also using my movies for metadata and TMT5 for blu-ray. I'd like to switch over to JRiver for blu-ray and dvds but am not sure how to launch and close it through my movies. Does anyone have this set up and in use?

Thanks, what i actually want to do is this:

http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=65984.0

but the link to the file no longer exists and i can't locate any archives of it online. If anyone was using this and still has a copy i'd be much obliged.

Just tried it again and it worked?

Not sure what was different but now i can give it a shot.

So messed around with that a bit and got it working as an external player for WMC. If anyone is interested in doing the same but has any issues feel free to pm me.

That is great but the EPG in Theater View needs a ton of work to be even a fraction as usuable as WMC. It is just poorly implemented.

Simple example, you close a program and return to the guide, the guide is still at the same point in time as when you launched the program an hour ago. Remote control of TV is just plain weird. Normal Windows Media Center buttons like channel up and down may or may not work..... it would seem straightforward to get the guide working first class. Sadly it seems like
TV functionality has creeped backward over time.

I am presently using mpchc to play dvds and blu-ray mkvs with lav decoders and madvr, but have not figured out how to install the tmt dts decoder. Would Jriver with red october provide this dts decoder? And would jriver provide any benefits in terms of audio and video quality over mpc?
post #884 of 1119
No, you still need to provide the DTS decoder yourself, but JRiver MC can of course use it no problem.

JRiver has countless audio improvements and features over mpc-hc and just about all common PC players. Inevitably it does depend though on how many of those you need or want. If all you want is to pass movie audio unaltered to an AVR there is not a whole lot any player can do, other than maybe improve jitter a little.

For video though it's advantages are more in ease of configuration. If you already have LAV and MadVR and Reclock installed and working on mpc-hc Jriver's video quality should be the same, but not really different. Jriver's Videoclock, which reduces video judder caused by mismatched frame and refresh rates, is a whole lot easier to set up than Reclock. In fact there is nothing to configure at all, just turn it on.

Place it in your \Windows\System32 folder - where LAV etc can read it from.

I attempted to install the lav filters and madvr but I don't think I was successful - I am not computer savvy. I am passing the audio directly from an asus soundcard to monoblock amps - no avr. I will try the jriver free trial - am I correct that all I do is choose red october and videoclock?
post #888 of 1119
I'm a bit confused. You said you were using LAV and MadVR with MPC-HC, then you said you don't think they were installed. However, that doesn't matter if using JRiver. MC will install and use its own copies.

With JRiver MC only Red October HQ uses MadVR. I am assuming your PC is beefy enough for this. Assuming it is, then enabling ROHQ, and Videoclock if you need it, should be a good start.

You will not get HD audio for DTS-HD unless you install the Arcsoft DTS decoder, but you will get regular DTS audio instead. There are tweaks you can make to MadVR to improve video quality if your PC is man enough, but those are best left for now!

MC 18.0.146 added support for Ceton devices:

http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=79010.0

It hasn't been tested outside JRiver yet.
post #890 of 1119
Just wondering and maybe you cannot answer this for trade reasons but is JRiver working on or helping with the GUI development for the echo android system?

I did. You are referencing the wiki article for ceton and this is the JRiver thread?

Been using jRiver Media Center 18 through the trial period and have purchased it as it works so well with my Onkyo receiver in DLNA mode. I have audio settings sorted out now, and jRiver operates fantastically well with Windows 8's new WASAPI. It is time to deal with the video side. I would like to stream the Video via DLNA like the music the Onkyo TX-NR709 can sure do this sort of thing. I have plenty of ways to play all of my documentary TV shows now so this is not a pressing thing but I would like to set it up if possible. I am going to assemble a new PC in the very near future advice on a graphics card to work with jRiver in this mode would be nice. I am going to mostly lurk right now I don't know enough about the network video side of jRiver to ask a good question. smile.gif

Been using Media Jukebox since Dec 2010!!!

Still in the trial period for JRiver. I have to say the audio playback quality blows away anything else I've tried. Have played several audio files and tried some movies. I've been using Theatertek for movies for several years and love the simple and straight forward way it always works. However in recent years I've felt the audio was lacking. Enter JRiver. My only problem with it currently is that it won't play the video for some of my movies. I always get the audio, but on about 30% of the movies, the screen is black. I've played with some of the settings, but so far nothing has worked. This occurs both when I play something ripped to my library (ISO) or try to play directly from the DVD. Please help me with this issue. One thing I noticed when doing an A-B comparison between Theatertek and JRiver as I have them configured, is that the video from Theatertek is superior, but the audio in JRiver is far superior. If there is some way that I can allow the video drivers for Theatertek to work while retaining the audio from JRiver, that would satisfy me until I can upgrade hardware to take advantage of better features in JRiver. However I don't even know if that's possible. I'd still like to at least get video to function properly 100% of the time.

My OS is Windows XP, with an ASUS Mobo and AMD 64-bit CPU.

Happy to provide additional information about my setup if it helps with a solution. I'm currently stumped and not savvey enough to know my way around JRiver to properly tinker with it. If this has been discussed before, I apologize. So far my research hasn't located an solution. I would appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction.

Thanks,
Craigo

Sorry you're having trouble. Try setting Video to both Red October Std and RO HQ. Does either work?

Take a look at this thread for some other video problems and a couple of solutions.

There was an Nvidia setting that also made a difference for someone recently, but I don't remember what it was. You could try a search for "black screen".

Did you get it working with MC 17 or MC 18?

Thanks!

Can I open J River Database from another PC without messing up the database? The main library is handeld by my HTPC, but it will be easier to rip and manage the tags from my desktop. I do not mean using Library Server but open the actual databse from another PC.

Hello!

For the past few weeks I've been working on a BB10 remote application for JRiver Media Center called "eos". I've just posted it to BlackBerry World for approval, so it should be available some time soon!

If you've got a new BlackBerry and are a JRMC user, check out this thread on JRiver's forums for more info! http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=79677.0

Cheers!

For those who have interest in JRiver and the Ceton, the recent builds have each shown improvements. On my main HTPC I now have one foot in the JRvier stream and the other in the WMC. Playback of the Ceton on JR is now very good, channels changes often are faster than WMC.. on the other hand sometimes you can get some stuttering during a channel change. It still lacks the polish of WMC for live and recorded TV. For some reason JRiver seems to want to stick to their broken guide design instead of just quickly copying the best and most important part of WMC, its guide.

If you have the GPU though the picture with Red October HQ can be sensational. I bought an HD 7790 which is pretty stout for HTPC use but still is only an 85 wattt TDP card. I am able to use MadVR and Jinc 3 AR on upscaling and chroma scaling along with a pretty high setting for downscaling. The picture quality is a giant step up from the stock WMC filter chain. So while I still have a foot in WMC I am using JR MC 18 more and more. I don't feel I could set my wife free on it as I guarrantee the guide would have her throwing the remote at the TV. But for me, I can live with that aspect for live TV while I wait for them to finally rework their guid piece.After several years of waiting I feel like we are almost there with MC 18 and the current build.

It does take some horsepower at the GPU to do MadVR at the higer level which is where the real picture quality comes out. The nice thing about MadVR and LAV Video is they have had regular improvements over time and if you have the horsepower you will get continuing improvements in picture quality for TV and Movie playback. GPUs just get faster, cheaper and consume less power so there is a synergy going on with the high end renderer and the hardware improvements we see every six months or so.

When they do copy protected content I will check this out. Nearly half my package is marked as such.
