Hi All, After the positive things said about ffdshow, I thought i'd give it a try. Unfortunately I'm having a few problems getting it work. Firstly I'm still using the older version of TT (1.5?), does it work with this or just the 2.xx version? Also, it won't play any PAL stuff, only NTSC, which is really stuttery.most of my DVDs are stored on hard disc and I use Xlobby as a front end. I've followed the guide posted from HTPC news which seems straitforward enough, although I don't have the sonic icon in the control panel to enable/ disable hardware acceleration, so I'm not sure how else to do this. I guess this could be part of the problem Also my nebula card started playing up (sound, no picture). I've since removed ffdshow and everything is now OK. If anybody can give me a few pointers, would be much apprecieated. Cheers Rob.
