  • MII 12000 Hardware acceleration does not work

    Hi there

    I have a MII 12000 mobo and DVD playback is jerky. I have tried powerdvd 5 and 6 and windvd 6 but each time I switch on hardware acceleration, the machine hangs. It will only work without hardware acceleration switch.

    I have upgraded all drivers to latest and tried all things suggested on other VIA forums. I can now get it to play at a reasonable rate but only without hardware acceleration switched on. If I switch it on, it takes ages to load DVD and to start playing.

    Is it because epia drivers are not yet up to scratch with powerdvd/windvd? Should I go back to previous versions of powerdvd?

    Any other suggestions- the reason I went with the MII 12000 was because of the MPEG2 hardware acceleration - now it stands idly by

    I have the MII 12000 and don't have any probs with DVD playback. I have tried the hardware acceleration option but don't see any improvements on quality. How much RAM do you have? Where is the DVD player plugged into - usb, IDE, Firewire etc.? Post your PC specs!
