DVD Playback quality problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
System specs...
HD3850 newestest drivers
windows xp
PowerDVD ultra 7 (full version, updated)
Lite-On Blu-ray / DVD player

Problem:
I will have to take screenshots to explain the problems more clearly but here we go anways. When playing normal DVDs I've noticed that when a single color, or just a couple colors take up a large area (without a lot of detail) the picture in that area looks 16bit (really bad quality) but if another part of the same screen there is an object that is very detailed with lots of color then I can't see any issues. However, I do not have this problem in BluRays. It didn't always do this, just noticed it one day. Can't think of anything that changed that might have caused the issue.

What've I've done to try and figure out whats going on
Played some dvds in a standard player to make sure i wasn't going nuts.
Played a DVD in Windows Media Player (same issue)
tried turning off hardware acceleration (didn't help)
checked settings in PowerDVD (everything looked right)
played movie directly from disc and also mounted image from daemon tools (same issue)
reloaded video drivers (no luck)
reloaded powerdvd (no luck)

So what do you guys think?

I'd try to download ffdshow and see if that fixes your problem. It may require a reboot.

Download GraphEdit (google), then go to File -> Render Media File and select one of the 1GB VOBs on the DVD, and take a screenshot of the graph that appears.

You can move the boxes around if it doesn't all fit in your screen. Make sure it's all visible.
(or file -> save as graph, but that might not work properly)

(of course, you're supposed to post the .grf or screenshot here)
