I have a XPS M1330 with an HDMI out. I output my desktop to my HDTV, and iwatch movies on it.
I'm using MPC and using Overlay mode to output.
I watched movies like Dark Knight 1080p (not the one by HD1080, the group that released the imax version of it), and it plays fine if I set the priority to Real Time in the task manager.
for a lot of my other 1080 movies, it'll start to lag after about 5 min of viewing, even with the priority set high.
the annoying thing is that if i play it on just my laptop screen, it plays fine w/o lag. it's only when i output it onto my tv that they lag...
is there any way to fix these lag issues?
Does overlay use my 8400GS's hardware rendering? I know that all Nvidia 8xxx series cards have hardware decoding for x264.
