    Just started to play Star Trek First Contact 1080i on my computer which is a Pentium 4 3.4ghz and noticed I get little white vertical lines randomly flickering over the screen. My display is a 17" TFT with a max res of 1280*1024. Could this be the problem?

    I was hoping to connect my PC to a Panny 42" Plasma to watch the movies on. I know that has a weird res, something like 852*480. I hope this wont make it even worse.

    I have also tried an episode of Enterprise in 1080i and Star Wars 2 1080i. They do it aswell.

    I have got Elecard Mpeg Player 2.3 and have used that aswell as Zoomplayer and Media Player 9. They all do it :mad:

    I havent got any 720 stuff to play with yet.

    any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Glen.

    Tried changing my res to 1024*768 and it seems to be working.

    Make sure you've got DX9(b) installed (think it's "b" now) & try updating your graphics drivers.

    Have SP2 installed which has DX9.0c and I am already using the latest Nvidia Forceware drivers :)

    I think it must be a problem with 1080i material and 1280*1024

    Not had that problem watching 1080i .ts files on my Samsung LCD at 1280*1024. Mind you different panel, different drivers etc so doesn't really mean a thing:)

    Oh, that's got me stumped then. I used to have a Radeon 9800XT a few months ago and that did the same thing. I was using Catalyst 4.7 then.

    I have a good spec machine so it's not as though I'm runnnig out of horsepower either. I doubt it's my TFT as I have one of the 16ms Hitachis.

    I haven't a clue now.

    What HDTV software are you using, and did you have to make any changes in it's setup.

    Thanks for any help you can give :)

    Much appreciated!

    Glen.

    I use the VLC player, no modifications made to the default setup and image quality is very good both on 1080 and 720 streams.

    You could try asking about this problem in the forum over at the abhdtv website, some very knowledgeable people using a wide range of hardware.

    Thanks,

    I'll give VLC a try. If I still get problems I'll do what you said and ask at altbinarieshdtv

    Cheers mate :thumbsup:
