0x80040217 or crappy DVD frame rate: Choose One
I'm trying sage right now. I nuked Vista MCE for MythDora, and finally gave up on that too. Now I'm trying SageTV on top of Windows XP Pro 32bit.
My goal is to be able to:
a) watch/record TV/HDTV
b) play my ripped DVD collection (all legally purchased).
c) play my ripped Blu-ray and HD-DVD collection (ditto).
I use clone DVD and Anydvdhd.
The TV viewing works fine. It finds my ripped DVD's no problem. But the DVD playback is completely choppy.
So I installed ArcSoft's TotalMedia Theater, but when I try to tell Sage to use these decoders, I get -4,0x80040217 for everything.
Also, I have to run the system in non-exclusive mode, otherwise, again, I get the -4,0x80040217.
I am running my 7800 thru analog VGA. I have a shitty Samsung 5078 (with a big black shadow down the side), which only does 1080p through VGA, not HDMI. So I wondered if the error was due to not using DVI, and switched to a very ugly 1080i DVI-to-HDMI output.
Now I can run in exclusive mode, but the performance has not changed.
I have successfully used ArcSoft Theater to play disc and ripped blu-ray and HD-DVD at 1080p VGA so its not like my PC is braindead.
Honestly, I can live without the Blu-ray/HD-DVD stuff and live with using the ArcSoft for that, but the movies are for my kids and they need to "just work".
I have read the FAQ and the troubleshooting FAQ. I tried the DXVA option. I have tried every combination of overlay, FSE etc. I either get the error, or crappy performance on DVD. HDTV either works fine or errors.
Hopefully some of you will have surmounted these same problems.
Advice gratefully appreciated,
