For DVD give this a try:
DVD Macrovision Error Workaround
Install ffdshow from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffds...eric%20builds/
. For components, you can uncheck everything. For speaker setup, select disable mixer.
Then open MPC-HC. Go to external filters, and add ffdshow video decoder at the end of your external filters list, and set it to prefer. Double click on ffdshow video decoder, go to codecs, and next to mpeg2, select libavcodec as the decoder, and make sure dvd decoding is checked at the bottom.
DVDs should then work when you try to open them with file>open dvd in mpc hc.
Also, block haali
I am getting the best video resolution I have ever gotten and have stopped using powerDVD for Blu-ray discs and PowerDVD and 7MC for DVD and iso and now use mpc-hc.
As Assassin writes picture quality is highly subjective but I assert I am getting clearly and amazingly better results.
I have my AVR plugged into a Nvidia Asus GT 440, 1 GB DDR5 assisted by an I5 HD4000 processor using Lucid Virtu MVP software which came with my ASUS ivy bridge P8 Z77-V pro motherboard. I am using MadVR with the jinc scaler and anti ringing.
