My RR/DFX 4.0 100% CPU usage issue
I'm starting a new thread since I'm still unable to get this issue resolved in the other threads its spread across.
Hopefully I will get this resolved, and others might be able to reference this thread should they have a similar issue.
I have a brand new install of XP on a new machine. I installed the latest Version of RR via the New Official RR installer Thread (10-11-08) located here --> http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/road...installer.html
I've had some issues with High CPU usage at an Idle state. At this time, I would not be happy with this install in my car since its performing pretty poorly, especially since others report their CPU usage is under 10% most of the time. I'm often pegged at 100% (or close to it).
I've posted a small vid showing the high CPU usage and if you look closely you can see what I can only describe as a "laggy" feel to RR. There seems to be a small delay each second (you can see this if you watch the clock).
I've changed the Clock logo to just the playlist and still have the same issues.
When I switch to XM radio, the CPU% does drop some, but into the high 60% range. Not sure if this is a clue to the problem or not.
Here are the steps I have taken to try and fix this issue so far:
Update my video drivers from VIA's site
Install DFX 4.0
Uninstall flash and get the latest from Adobe.com using IE (Step 10 in How to Speed up RR FAQ)
Turned down hardware acceleration (Step 5 in How to Speed up RR FAQ)
Turned off iList (then turned it back on by setting Usedx=true when it had no effect)
Install DirectX 9c
Just to throw it out there, this is the Motherboard/ CPU I have:
Any help would be very much appreciated.
