Hey all, I have just recently built a media center computer that has MCE 2k5 installed. I actually have two problems, whenever I am watching Live TV The video will stutter..(I guess thats what its called) it does it randomly throughout the whole showing and the video and audio will I guess stop for a 1/2 second and they continue. The 2nd problem is the Lower channels sub<10 are very very bad quality. There is a lot of static to the video and channels like 2-4 are barely watch-able. I have read threads that say to update the drivers for the TV Tuner and the video card, and I did these with no luck at all. I am a pretty good computer person and usually can figure out everything that goes wrong, but I have no idea with this one. Other threads have indicated to use a compatible MPEG-2 Encoder, I downloaded the trial of NVIDIA TrueView or something and still no luck. I read somewhere that the AMD Dual Core processors cause the same problem as my 1st one and they have an update for them, I searched to see if the same applied to the single core and I could find nothing. I have also read about IRQ Sharing could possibly cause these problems, I have not messed with the IRQ's that much, but I have a broad knowledge of what they are (I am studying for the A+ Cert), I know you need to go into the bios to change them, but I dont want to mess with them unless someone online or somewhere can tell me what to do, because I dont really want to mess this up even more than it already is. Specs are AMD ath. 3200+ 64 xp Sapphire radeon 9250 128 mb 128bit AGP Hauppauge PVR 150 MCE Corsair ram - 512 MB 1x 40Gb Hdd (5400 RPM, IDE) that has MCE Installed on it And 1x 250Gb Hdd (7200 RPM, IDE) that is strictly for video/recording +2 external hard drives that hold pictures/movies/music/ect... Anyone have any ideas on what is wrong or anything to do? Sorry this is so long, but I needed to get all of the symptoms in here and everything that I have already tried, thank you for your help AGAIN! It will be very appreciated by my roommate and me if I get this thing working flawlessly.
