What sort of flickering are you talking about? Is it still the 50hz issue, or just a general subtle flicker during any TV program? There was some setting I turned off in the Intel control panel like "skin tone optimization" or something along those lines that made the latter go away.
Hmm Interesting... Just discovered this forum discussion!
I've been playing around trying resolve this Live TV issue for weeks now with no great success. The only way I've managed to fix the glitches on channel change (in Win8 Media Center on both HD & SD channels) is to disable Microsoft Video Decoder and use LAV codecs (with Shark007 codec application)... but that creates other issues like no fast forward and rewind function.
Either way, it's good to see that this problem has been acknowledged by Intel and a fix (hopefully) is on the way!
Another 4 weeks have passed since the last 'please wait' response from Intel, so I guess I'll ask again:
Intel, is this still in the works or has it been abandoned?
This, and the fact that 23p support has been omitted for the DH77EB (but actually is available on other series 7 boards) makes it really hard to use it for media centric applications.
What about to use an older Driver as a Workaround? Does this help? It thera are any Drivers without this Bug.
I use my Board with Linux and there Live TV (VDR and XBMC) works without Problems so far.
Here are the Results of the various Versions posted here with this Problem:
Update Oct 24. Driver Version 2867 -- no fix
Update Nov. 2 Driver Version 2875 -- no fix
I had uploaded a bunch of test recordings (in post 35) here:
test files can be found here:
good to know that not just Europe is effected.
Could you mention what kind of stream this is , e.g h264 1080i50 or 720p50 ...
Hi yamcenutzer -
The recording was of DVB-T transmission. Example 1 is a transition from 1080i50 to 1080i50; 2 is from 1080i50 to 576i50; 3 is from 576i50 to 576i50. I think it's entirely H.264, although the SD channels might be MPEG2.
I'm looking forward to these fabled new drivers. Intel really need to get this sorted.
Hi Robert -
Thanks very much for posting these drivers.
Unfortunately they're not quite there. On my machine (Windows 8 x64; Core i5 3570K / HD 4000; DH77EB motherboard) at least, transitioning from 1080i to 576i seems to be perfect now, as does 576i to 576i, but 1080i to 1080i is the same as before (see video a couple of posts up).
If you'd like me to run any tests or want any further information from me, I'd be happy to oblige.
A first test I did on 2 machines (ASUS P8Z77-V and DH77EB) shows that live-TV HD doesn't show the switch/resize/skip issues anymore. That is good! The '42s bug' is in fact gone. There still is some short distortion/pixelation when switching between channels, esp. SD/HD, but that is something different, I guess.
However, I do notice that overall picture quality has, let me put it this way, _changed_. I'll have to do more comparative tests with old/new and SB chips to find out if the quality change is for the worse or just 'different' and I need to get used to it or use other settings in the control panel.
I'll get back with more results after the next weekend.
@ -ddd- AFAIK and IMHO the 23p issue is a BIOS/ME related thing only for the DH77EB board and that issue is being discussed, if at all, in that thread.
If, however, you're looking for 'perfekt' 23p, well that isn't going to happen it seems, it won't get better than 23.973 on this platform, so it looks.
