BD and HD are perfect straight away. However I should mention I get sparkles on the screen if the refresh rate is too high. At 24hz its perfect.
I stick in a normal DVD and its all washed out stuttering and tearing accross the screen in about 4 places at once. Totally unwatchable!!
This is connected to a RS-1 projector going through a Denon 2807.
I'm not sure how the 2807 treats HDMI signals. Could this be the cause?
If I run the video out the DVI onto a monitor at 1080 it looks fine! Only though HDMI is it all messed up.
Oh and a while back I mentioned no problems playing back with cool and quiet running in vista on a 4850e cpu. I was wrong. I get the same stuttering when I change the power setting.
I am using an Asus M3N78-EMH HDMI with the latest 0507 BIOS, a 4850e CPU, Vista Ultimate 32bit, PDVD8U 1703B, 175.19 drivers and AnyDVD HD. It is running through an Onkyo 905 to a Samsung F96 (Euro version of the 81 series).
So a similar setup to you, with multi-channel LPCM audio.
I have smooth Blu-Ray playback at 1080p24 and now DVDs play without stuttering at 1080p50.
I saw now, as I was having stuttering problems with some DVDs, but I solved them by turning off de-interlacing in the PowerDVD config. I am still using hardware acceleration, just not for de-interlacing.
This setup appears to have stop stuttering and Cool'n Quiet doesn't seem to introduce any problems
