I recently bought the Epson TW2000 1920*1080 projector. Must say, a great one! But since the switch to this pj (came from a Mitsubishi HC3000) I have big tearing troubles with my HTPC. (I own the 7600GS 256mb ddr2 card and installed the latest Nvidia driver). Tonight I DID found a way to eliminate eg. 80% of the tearing but it is stil there sometimes. What I did to solve most of the tearing was turn ON 'Wait for Vertical Sync' in the Nvidia config. Turning this to 'let app. decide' or 'OFF' gives me tearing almost the entire movie playback!
So at this moment the tearing IS less but it is still there and annoying. I just watched a whole movie and every minute or so there is tearing. Most of all (like expected) the tearing is worse during fast scenes in a movie.
So what steps do I take to eleminate this problem?
What you should know:
- Full Screen mode in TheaterTek is turned ON
- I use a custom made resolution with Powerstrip that matches with reclock EXACTLY (zero drops and repeats that reclock reports after an entire movie!)
- Use the lastest Nvidia drivers
- XP with SP2
- Latest TT version with VMR9
I also know that the problem is probably caused by the VMR9 renderer but I do not want to switch to Vista (and use the evr renderer) because of ReClock incompatibility with Vista.
I made a custom res. with Powerstrip of 1920*[email protected]
,971 which results in a 47,959Hz (VERY close to the PERFECT 47,952Hz as you can see!) reported by ReClock.
So what more steps can I take to solve this problem?
