Lav / MadVR Setup


Standard Member
I built my HTPC in May 2010 and although I am not the most technically gifted, I had everything working as I needed it too. Recently I am having issues with FFDShow's DXVA decoder resulting in terrible quality video playback.

I have read about Lav & Madvr and even tried an install following a guide I came across the picture looked ok although the sound was just white noise.

My use will be MKV Playback and I would like to bitstream audio to my Amplifier.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of an easy to follow guide as the one I used seemed to based largely on Anime playback which is not necessary.

Forgot to add that I have an ATI 5XXX GPU

I used this guide below mate and works well for me with both Blu Ray iso and MKV. I don't have an amp so not sure on the sound.
