Dear All,


In my quest for the best home theatre quality, I am almost there.

Yesterday I used Zoomplayer 2.5, to acitvate ATI 7.5 grafic filters with

PowerdvdXP audioe out(S/Pdif).

This works best with my Ati-card(7500) and my pana ae100.

However, there are 2 remaining problems.

1) I can’t seem to get the brightness and contrast as I want to.

When I compare the image which comes directly from the ATI 7.5 player

With the one that comes throuhgh Zoomplayer, there’s a big difference.

The zoomplayer picture is too bright and I can’t seem to be able to alter it in the

way I want it to. Does anyone know what the best settings are for this?

The ati 7.5 picture is superb, the zoom is superb also but too bright.

2) The zoomplayer(using abovementioned filters) doesn’t accept region changes.

Using dvdGenie I can read every region, as my dvd-rom player is region free.

However, the ati 7.5 doesn’t seem to be able to accept every region.

The software player itself accepts different regions, but when booting up the dvd,

It says that my dvd-rom player is not set on the correct region.

It asks if I want to reset the region to region 2 for instance.

This is strange as my dvd-rom player has no region lock.

Help please!!

Last but not least, I want to thank everyon who replied to my postings.

I wouldn’t have be able to come this far without your help!

;)

I find that you need to open the Color Overlay Control in the pop up menu and turn down the Brightness setting. I believe I have it set to about 1000 otherwise it is way too bright. Afraid I can't help you with region changes.

Thanx, I'll try it tonight.

Do you have any idea what your other settings are(ie gamma).

I use Region Killer... you should find it in the link below, install it and then activate it by clicking on the icon on the system tray.

I used to use DVDGenie, but I had to reboot to make the change active.. not anymore! You region problem has to do with the region setting of your OS, Windows XP. Region Killer takes care of that, once activated you can change dvds with different regions and it wil work fine

Which video drivers are you using? Some old version gave me problems of different overlays behaviour between applications...
