PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Title says it all. I have AnyDVD HD installed, and the PowerDVD suite that comes with the LG SuperMulti Bluray/HD-DVD drive. The movie will play, but no video shows. I recently installed the CCCP Codec pack.

Anyone know what's going on?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Please also tell us your OS, and your video card & monitor.

I understand that Vista has a "protected video path" which may blank out the video, or downgrade it, if the video card, video card driver, and monitor are not HDCP compliant.

Also, how do you connect the monitor to the monitor? DVI-Analogue, DVI-Digital, DSUB15 (the old blue one with 15 pins) or HDMI?

Cheers.

Did you update PowerDVD? What version do you have?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Okay, I installed the newest video card driver and now blu-rays play flawlessly. However, HD-DVDs play, but they stutter constantly. It isn't smooth at all. Anyone know the verdict on this one?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Ok one problem fixed (blu-ray) and one to go (HD DVD).

If blu-ray plays perfect, no stutters, then your system is good for hidef overall.

If HD DVD stuters (while Blu-ray is OK), my guess will be: the HD DVD disc, or the settings in PowerDVD (for HD DVD or general eq audio, video etc).

Do you have any specific use of CCCP?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Okay, I just tried out The Gotham Knight on blu-ray, and that one is starting to stutter as well.

This is my theory: Every HD-DVD I have tried stretches the frame out to completely fill up my monitor. This is the same for The Gotham Knight. These are the only ones that are stuttering. Terminator 2 and Layer Cake on Blu-ray do not take up the full screen, and do not stutter. Does this mean I need a better video card to render the movies better?

Do you have hardware acceleration enabled in PowerDVD?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Can you increase the buffers in powerdvd?
Maybe it's set up for DVD (much lower bitrate).

No I don't see anything like that in the configuration. It seems like everything is set to optimal performance settings.

What's the cpu utilization when it starts to stutter?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

PowerDVD.exe is using about 75% average of the CPU. The total CPU usage goes up to about 90-95%.

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

That's too high. Doesn't seem like hardware acceleration is working on your setup. If you turn hardware acceleration off and try the same disc again, can you check to see if the CPU utilization changes.

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Everything is about the same. I think maybe the PowerDVD is using up a little less with hardware acceleration off. But CPU usage is definitely the same.

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

Yea, that's bad. It's an indication that while hardware acceleration may be turned on, it's not working. Hence the problems. That's a much older card. I would recommend upgrading to something a bit more modern. Something at least in the 3xxx series which can be found quite cheap these days.

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

I have X1950Pro on a Quad core and blu-ray/hd dvd plays fine. In another PC I have a cheap HD2400 pro ($29) on an E6600 and blu-ray is also fine.

This is hard... what kind of cables your are using to connect your PC to your monitor/TV? Did you try another HDMI cable (or DVD-HDMI cable)? Also can you check if there's software that takes your system resource on top of PowerDVD (before you play blu-ray)?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

DMA is on for everything? (or everything is SATA)?
Update Video Card drivers & Audio Card drivers.

System Restore Turned off?
Indexing Turned off?
USB Flash Drives plugged in while playing?
Additional CD's/DVD's installed in drives while playing bluray/HDDVD?

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

How do I know if DMA is on for everything? I'm pretty sure everything is SATA.
All video card drivers and audio card drivers updated.

System restore turned off.
Indexing turned off.
No USB flash drives plugged in.
No additional CD's/DVD's installed in drives.

Problem still exists.

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

I still say the video card isn't running hardware acceleration which is why the problem exists. I know zevia doesn't agree with me on this one. (He's got a freaking quad core so I doubt he'd even notice if hardware acceleration wasn't on! ) Nonetheless, the 2xxx series of cards were far better for BD/HD DVD playback and the 3xxx series were even better than those. It's too bad you didn't have another card you could try or another machine you could try your video card in.

Re: PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

SamuriHL, I remember blu-ray plays fine on my son's machine E6400 + ATI X1600 on VGA and 1GB RAM.

In post #9 he said blu-ray plays flawlessly but then later something went bad and it stutters again. You still haven't respond to my post #21 above, Dissonance.
