Removing ffdshow from the graph altogether does not help and I've found that even using any DVD software without hardware accel. (not through Zoom.) gives me the same problem. Enabling HW accel. instantly gives me smooth playback for both video and film. I guess what I'm asking is: are ffdshow and hardware accel. impossible to use together? Or have I just not found the right combination of software and video drivers?
If impossible is there a simpler way of changing graphs in Zoom and toggling HW accel in PowerDVD without digging into settings menus?
I'm trying to step up the ease of use factor for my old lady.
"HWA with ffdshow is simply NOT possible." good, this means my ZP config. is finished. My wife will just have to watch the old-fashioned way and not touch my HTPC.
I have experienced the graph-less goodness that is ZP 3, it worked perfectly with ffdshow, reclock and spdif pass-through after 3 minutes in the player options... and then I deleted it. I'll gladly send Blight his 20 bucks but it's gonna take years of using 2.9 to justify the time it took my sorry a$$ getting it to work.
