Amilo Pi2530 and Xbox 360 HD DVD  Topic is solved

Postby abuze » Sat Mar 22, 2008 7:53 pm


I have problems running HD DVDs with the Xbox 360 HD DVD drive in my Amilo Pi2530 2ghz. 2gb ram, ATi 2300 HD... you know the rest. Running Vista home premium.

The problem is choppy picture and sound.

I have tried both ArcSoft Totalmedia theatre and PowerDVD. I have also tried disabling the hardware acceleration for the gfxcard ATI Avivo. Then installing CoreAVC for software decoding. Same thing...

The CPU load is nearly 100% all the time. Maybe the problem is that easy that the hardware isnt enough for HD DVD.

Funny is that the Cyberlink BD/HD advisor says that my hardware is enough. No problem at all....

Anyone else tried this with success?

SOLUTION: install Windows XP!

Going from Vista with 100% CPU usage and choppy picture and audio to Xp with 50-60% CPU usage was a real performance boost!

Conclusion: Vista sucks on yet another area.
