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.
