Can SVP be used for blu-ray (and 3D blu-ray) playback? Could it be used for Netflix or live TV playback as well? I'm a big fan of the smooth video look and was considering getting an HTPC together just for the purpose of "SVP'ing" everything I could. It seems more economical to buy a budget projector and pair it with an HTPC using SVP than buying a pricier projector that has it's own frame interpolation.


Thanks for any thoughts or advice. I haven't used a PC in years (mac guy) so I am pretty green on all the latest stuff.

The point is whether you can insert ffdshow (raw video filter) in the video playback filter chain. You can't use ffdshow with PowerDVD / TMT / WMC with CableCard tuner / Netflix.


2D BD: Yes if you use a non-commercial player such as MPC-HC / MPC-BE

3D BD with Frame packing output: No, one reason is that HDMI 1.4a does not have enough bandwidth for 1920x1080x2 @60fps.

Live TV (movies) over OTA / clear QAM: Maybe possible. But 60i telecined movie has to be converted to 24p by IVTC (inverse telecine) first, which adds another complication.
