Hi all,

my question is simple. Will the new XP Beta-Driver ATI 6.13.3281 support DXVA, witch we must have for the newest DVD-Player ?

I have some trouble with the PQ with Cineplayer 4.0;PowerDVD XP 4.0. The Picture looks very noisy and lots of artifakt.

Please let me know !

What do you think about the Omega-Drivers for XP.

Have a look: http://209.145.56.247/


Regards

Richard

Ritsch,


I use the same driver with my Radeon VE and, after disabling the 2nd head, PowerDVD XP produces quite a nice picture. There is no obvious difference with hardware acceleration on or off, so I am not sure if DXVA is being used or not.

Hi Stephen,

OK, DXVA is supportet bei ATI.

But where can be the problem ?

I can't see a different in PQ HWMC on or off with the Cineplayer 4.0.

There is also a few settings in the Registry for DXVA.

HKEY_LOKAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CONTROLSET001/SERVICES/DEVICE 0/ATI2MTAG/DXVA

There are others in CURRENTCONTROLSET and CONTROLSET002.

I have enable all these DXVA to "1"

When I disable these settings, run Cineplayer,look in the Information tab. There is still DXVA IDCT !!!

What is wrong here?

I need your help.


Regards

Richard


P.S. I only look PAL-DVDs !

I'm not sure if I can help, but I will try.


1) Changing the keys (in the various control sets) likely to require a reboot.


2) Do you KNOW that Cineplayer is using DXVA or is it possible that it is using ATI IDCT (which is still there).


From a PQ perspective DXVA and IDCT are the same (at least in terms of decode). IDCT may have slightly better frame flipping logic / timing but that would mostly effect NTSC (59.97 vs. 60Hz).


I am no expert on Intervideo DVD . This forum has far better experts.

Cineplayer DVD 4.0 can enable/disable use of DXVA directly through the Settings->Video menu


Just check "Force Software Decoding Only" and click OK


If you check the Settings->Information tab, you note that hardware acceleration is now off and Cineplayer is just using plain YUV overlays.


Changing DXVA settings in the ATI driver's registry setting needs a re-boot to take effect. but this is not neceassay since DXVA control can be done right in the Ravsient app.

Hi,

Now I'm not sure my problem is the DXVA-support.

I have this bad picture with all DVD-players.

It looks like some extremely Solarisationseffekts, just really much of noise.

I run the 3281 er Driver with my Radeon 32 DDR on XP.

I heard something that there is a Bug or Path from ATI for this Problem.

To you Know something about that.

Since two week now, I tried to solve this problem !!

Please help.


Regars
