Good OS

Decent CPU.

Weak mobo and IGP.


I use the same 6150 mobo, but only for MPEG2 (OTA digital TV) at 1024x768 output.


What are your Win7 performance numbers?

Add a discrete graphics card and you will be fine with playing back 1080p contents. GeForce GT 220, 240, Radeon HD 5450, 5570, 5670 etc.

Hi,

You would be better off with 8200, 8300, base motherboard. I have the 4600 Dual Core on an 8200 mother board and it plays BlueRay disc in 1080p with out any problems. Also it can record Two OTA HDTV streams while playing back BluRay discs etc.

You never said what software you were using. Something like MPC-HC should play them and then it's just a question of whether or not you have enough horsepower. Are you able to play them but with stuttering or lagging?


It doesn't sound like you have a videocard with any h.264 acceleration capability (hence the other comments about getting a new one). You also might try installing the latest DivX which I think is the only free h.264 decoder with dual-cpu support.


You'd have to adjust the filters in MPC-HC to use them, though.

Try Overlay Mixer if you want to use 6150. I saw no frame drop when playing back H.264 1080p MKV (~80% CPU usage with X2 2.0GHz).


- MPC HomeCinema

- Haali Media Splitter

- ffdshow Video Decoder with H.264/AVC: libavcodec

- Overlay Mixer
