I have the below shown artifact problem, i don't have any windows updates or WIFI to disable.
I made 3 clean installs and always the same result.
The artifacts occur with "Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder" when i tune a non-FTA channel on W7MC. Free HD works fine.
I tried other codecs for W7MC and there is stability problem with other codecs and almost freezes when hardware deinterlaing is enabled.
The same problem happens with DVBViewer + "Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder" but other codecs works fine.
My GFX is Radeon HD 6850
I have 6 DVB devices connected to my system. Devices i use are:
- TechniSat SkyStar USB 2 HD CI (x1) ==> [ Videoguard CAM + original subscriber card]
- Digital Devices Duo Flex C/T (x2) ==> Octopus CI [ Conax CAM + original subscriber card]
- Digital Devices Duo Flex S2 (x2) ==> Octopus CI [ !!! My Videoguard CAM did not work with Digital Devices, so this will be used for something else !!! ]
- Hauppauge WinTV Nova HD S2 (x1) ==> [ Multisat + card sharing ]
The problem is not related with a specific DVB Device or CAS or Provider or DVB system, i've compared all and i'm sure of that.
Here is a screen shot showing NatGeoWildHD received with Digital Devices Duo Flex C
Since Duo Flex has 2 tuners and sharing a CAM i can use DVBViewer and W7MC at the same time to receive the same signal/stream.
The one on right is DVBViewer using ffdshow, the one on left is W7MC using default Microsoft codec.
I didn't have this artifact problem before clean install. I upgraded to new TVSource also, i hope this has nothing to do with new TVSource.
I tried LAV codec: not working stable, i tried core codec: not stable, i tried ffdshow: exits right away, microsoft codec with artifacts is stable.
I would appreciate any help on this matter. What codec should i use with W7MC? or what do you think the problem is?
