Hey guys,


first of all i want to say hello, cause this is my fist thread in this forum, since I dont find any solution in our german forums :)


My problem is the Edge Enhancement and denoise option in the CCC. its grayed out and i cant do nothing.


I bought a new BD drive and with it came the powerdvd ultra 7.


When i played the first BD i was disgusted.


even my mkv rips that i got looked better with MPC Home cinema and VLC Player.


I wondered why and checked the Driversettings (Catalyst 8.12) of my onboard 3200 (MB: Gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H newest bios) and saw that i cant configure the edge enhancement and denoise. I think this is the problem why the BD's look that fuzzy.


can anybody help me how to configure the Driver?

I think those options are not available on the HD3200 unless you have at least a three or four core phenom CPU. A lot of the post processing options will be grayed out because of this (like adaptive de-interlacing).

If you want to leave them as discs then you have a very limeted choice, either PowerDVD or TMT or possibly WinDVD.


I would highly recommend ripping the blu-ray movies into the mkv container without re-encoding and converting the HD audio track to lossless FLAC. It takes about one hour per BR disc. This way you can use MPC or what ever other player you choose.

Could it be that the combo of the 3200 and the 8.12 drivers are not HDCP-compliant and the video is being down-rezed? The current thinking is that the 8.9 drivers are the best for the onboard video of the 780G motherboard.

I had a problem with a blue screen issue where 8.9 and 8.12 cause an infinite loop due to a file called ATI2VAG when playing the Blu Ray "Serenity" I imagine it happens to other discs as well. It was suggested I drop back to 8.4 and it fixed the problem. So if you aren't happy with 8.9, try that.

tried 8.9 now, well i still cant change edge enhancement and denoise (but it is on 64 on the scale)


this is strange, the mkv rips look so much better than the original BD. i tried everything... ridicioulus...


i bought PDVD8 Ultra and still the quality has so much hissing/noise that the whole picture looked crap (Test BD: Saw 1-4, Born to fight, sex and the city)

i tried everything....still doesnt work , 8.9, 8.12... edge enhancement and denoise are not changeable (even with the ati reg vbs)


BD looks so much more disgusting than the mkv's. so much hizzing/noise.


testet saw 1-4, born to fight and sex and the city the movie. They all look like crap compared to the mkv's played with MPC HC (DXVA enabled).

Edge enhancement and noise reduction do not work with the HD3200, unless you have a Phenom.


However, that is not the cause of your bad PQ. Neither of those are required for playing HD media, they are mainly useful for SD DVD and SD analog broadcasts.


Personally I am using Catalyst 8.10 with my 780G motherboard and it is fine for HD DVD and BD playback with PowerDVD 7.3 Ultra. Quality is similar to a standalone player.


If your MKVs are 720p, they will probably exhibit less grain because of the downsizing. Try using an animation disc like Wall E to see what it looks like.
