So what is the point to vmr9(or 7) anyway?

I have done direct comparisons, using zoom player, between overlay mixer and the vmr9. Renderless, windowless and windowed.

To me, overlay is richer and cleaner. Vmr seems a little 'misty' and can't be adjusted out.
Same in Dntv Live, where colour controls are lost.

Now I have stuffed around a lot with this and the only thing I found was, using digital video essentials, that overlay does not pass information below "absolute black", vmr 7&9 do pass this. Pointless really.

So again, why vmr?

On some modern video cards, hardware deinterlacing only becomes available using VMR. You'll see this difference with supported codecs like nVidia's PureVideo using either supported ATi or nVidia hardware. Also subtitles are not supported with Overlay, though you might lose the ability to mirror the video to a second display with VMR.

Hi Guys,

Another update from the same link.

We have further changed the Mpeg mux filter settings to cope with high video bit rates on some 1080i broadcasts, if you use this recording format and if you have the time and inclination, try it and let us know how it goes for you. smile.gif


Cheers

Since changing to the latest 1.1.9 I get the error "Invalid index." whenever I try to switch to HDTV mode, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling DNTV as well as erasing all the channels and rescanning, also tried both DNTV and Purevideo decoders but I still get this message.

Any ideas?

*edit* never mind, tried changing channels a few time while the error was up and it started working... no problems so far! (Purevideo VMR9)

Another update to 1.1.9 is now available, from the same link.

Added a Reset Defaults and registry button for recovery.

Fixed an issue with setting correct colour control defaults in DVD Mode and during playback.

Added new Channel Nine logo smile.gif

as far as a piece of string is long smile.gif

We are working on new GUI first. You can easily stream using Video Lan and TsReader in the meantime smile.gif

I wouldn't say the lack of a feature makes it less stable. I'm assuming the new GUI will make it easier to use a remote for selecting media files etc? That's probably a better feature than network streaming anyway, considering there are alternatives in the meantime. biggrin.gif

Yes, that is the idea smile.gif

Which particular aspect you consider need to be more stable?

I have noticed the video aspect ratio options in DNTV don't work while using VMR9 (I like to use crop on some 4:3 shows) is this a codec or DNTV bug?

Actually, come to think of it, DNTV Live! is more stable than ever (now that the recording problems have been fully fixed)
