what combination of codecs are you using?

So I've tried the following:

Depending on whats installed what works where keeps changing.

Arcsoft works well for BD playback with hardware accel on or off.

Arcsoft with hardware accel on and HD PVR recordings is really poor quality wtih my video card (ATI HD 3870) but with hardware accell off the textures are good, but when the camera pans the image "shimmers" in a nausiating way. So poor quality textures if hardware acceleration is on, and poor quality motion if hardware acceleration is off.

Arcsoft also plays well with SageTV.

CoreAVC has both good texture and good motion, but it only works in graphedit. With Core and Arcsoft installed media player chokes, and sage doesn't work no mater what codec is selected. I really don't understand why graphedit can play back fine and media player classic cannot. They should be using the same graphs shouldn't they? I can't get graphedit to connect to remote graphs to verify.

I can get coreavc to work in sage if Arcsoft isn't installed, even if it is specified in sage.props file as the h264 decoder. It locks up sage.

I couldn't get sage to work with any codecs if cyberlink was installed.
I also couldn't get any player to play back smooth with ffdshow enabled for h264.

So I'm curious, what combination of codecs are you using?

I'm viewing on a 67" screen, so artifacts show up magnified.
I'd really like to use CoreAVC for Sage and Arcsoft for blu-ray but I cannot get that to work. Does anyone have that working?

All I want to be able to do is this:
Watch HD PVR recordings in good quality with good motion handling
Watch blu-ray movies in a blu-ray player app
Watch downloaded divx/xvid movies
Intel CoreTwo Quad 2.4ghz / Gigabyte EP45-DS3R Realtek SPDIF to Receiver via DD Live! / 2GB OCZ Ram / 260GB ATA133 System / 1TB SATA3 Sage NTFS 64k / Diamond ATI HD 3870 Catalyst 8.9+AVIVO+HDMI (Audio Dissabled) / LG Blu Ray+DVDRW / Hauppauge HD PVR rev D2 (Optical-Component) / DirecTV H21+USB-Serial Remote / Samsung 67" DLP + SSG-1000 3D glasses
