Hi,


been wrestling my new htpc/desktop for while now to have decent playback of my 1080p mkv's. The videos playback is grainy and doesnt' look crisp. My 1080i digital cable looks better than these. I've been using makemkv to create all my mkv from BR discs. I think i've wrestled with every codec pack there is with no luck (cccp/k-lite/coreav to name a few)


Hardware:

i7 -860

ati 5770 - hdmi out

4GB ram

Samsung 37a550


Any advise would be helpful

Thanks!

check your ATI graphics driver settings.

I noticed the 10.11 drivers doing crappy things.. Turn off most all of that crap, and see how it looks.

Several things...


You first need to figure out if it is your encoding software or decoding software. I hightly doubt that it is your graphics drivers. I would suspect that your encoding software is the culprit. You might want to read up other options...megui/avisynth as examples. Try downloading some 1080p mkv samples that others have encoded.

Ok, so this is a remux... Check CCC and disable any video processing like zryder suggested. Also, what media player are you using?

typically WMP but i get the same results with xmbc, mpc, and wmc
