I have an Acer Aspire Revo (ION) and I'm wondering which version I need to get 1080p mkv files working?

I've tried dsplayer and multiple trunk and SVN builds of xbmc and cannot find a version that works without stuttering with DXVA2 enabled.

This is on a completely fresh install of Windows 7 and I've been searching the forums all afternoon. Just about at the end of my tether.

give the builds at http://sshcs.com/xbmc/ a try.

30621 seems ok, and 30362 also works well for me.

Thanks, I got that working. I was using a dodgey mkv to test it with but it works with others.

Can I ask, since you are using these versions, how you add scrapers to this. There is only the movie db and I wouldnt mind imdb also.

I tried the 30621 release with a ATI 4350 and DXVA enabled. Playback of a 720p mkv was a bit jerky.

Anyone else unable to load 1080p with the latest r30667 for me it just says loading and it does this forever, 720p is working fine.

Edit: Nevermind, got it working.

Finally took the plunge & switched from XP to Win 7 Pro 32 bit , and installed r30667 yesterday to give it a try. Wow wasapi audio AND DXVA2! All seems good with this release, except I'm having problems getting audio working for SD .avi content. My AVR's surround light stays on (even though media is only stereo mp3), but no audio. I have the Win7 audio set as 5.1(same in XBMC, HDMI out), should that stay as 2 channel like it was for Win XP? Otherwise , everything seems to be rockin' !

Check your audio settings and, if checked, uncheck the mp3 capable radio button. I would guess that your receiver isn't able to decode mp3 sound natively. If that is the case unchecking this setting will enable xbmc to decode the signal and send it to your receiver as LPCM.

For those who are using SSHCS unofficial compilations never forget that you never know what's in it and that the XBMC developers kindly asked them to stop them to not confuse ppl even more, nevertheless after SVN303xx I saw that the code has been cleaned up more and more, my own builds are showing a huge difference in size, now it only weights 33MB or so (I know that PM3HD has been taken out of the kit but still),

Yep, sure enough, in video OCD there's a setting to route stereo audio to all 5.1 speakers. I'd never noticed that before
That seems to have done the trick! Nod

I meant the System\System\Audio Output settings, not the Video OCD - make sure that the mp3 radio button is unchecked there as well.

Yes, going to check that first thing after work. I'm pretty sure I had mp3 enabled
Am really happy I finally upgraded to Win 7 *32 bit*, seems I have less issues with these builds than with XP & the dsplayer ones.

For those of you that seem to exhibit juddering on ATI. It could be worth upgrading your drivers. I've heard they made some fixes there.
