I've heard that Windows 7 has a DXVA enabled H.264 codec. However mine doesn't seem to be working. I have a 4670 with CCC 9.7. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (RTM version). I can compare a 1080p24 H.264 mkv file at around 90% utilization vs playing that same file in TMT3 with about 20%. I have mpc-hc x64 and installed only Haali x64. It seems to hit 90% in both WMC, and MPC-HC, also for some reason the MPC codec gets blown away from the DTV decoder everytime even if I try to set that as preferred. Am I missing something? Also is there a way to check if it's actually hitting the DXVA route? I liked that about the MPC decoder, but it looks like MS says nuh uh, I'm not gonna use that one!
