You would think so. I get stuttering during playback. I've tried Win7 and Vista, using PowerDVD 9, I guess it could be PowerDVD 9.

Someone want to recommend a different app to try?

Would Xbox 360 count as htpc since I do stream my media through it from my old pc? If so, I'll reserve this for pics.

I had issues with powerdvd playing bluray playback, and it was all software. Good luck and hopefully you don't have to upgrade if you can find a simple software solution.

EDIT:

Ok bare with me, I had a issue with a hard drive and i was doing some hardware swapping. That is why my PC isn't in my tv stand. I would have gone LCD but for the price of this DLP i could not turn it down. Paid $2000 last year and what really got me interested in it is that it can do 3D with the PC, so that is just something for the future. I'm really having a hard time getting the right software for me but I believe once i downgrade my CPU ill have an extra mobo so it will become the server which will cut the sound/heat but a huge factor.

Its connected to 5.1 sound, **** speakers but good enough for the room. I usually have my 360/PS3 hooked up to that but ps3 got moved so my mom could listen to radio and 360 was elsewhere at the time.
Glad to hear it worked out fine,

@ MudFrog, that 4600+ is powerful enough for Blu-ray what kind of problems are you having? For 1008p files try the MPC-HC program,

The video constantly stutters. I didn't think MPC-HC played BluRay? I do use it for my mkv files though.

Last night I installed Totalmedia Theater and tried that. The CPU utilization went from 40-60% in PowerDVD 9 to 25-40% in TMT. "Most" of the stuttering stopped as well. I will get a little bit during an action scene but I can live with that for now. I was reading an old review on Tom's Hardware and it seems as if 25-40% is normal for nvidia 8800 series cards so I guess I'm set. I will more than likely wait for the prices of ATI cards to drop a bit more and grab one of those and a new CPU down the road.

One thing I'm unsure about is if my BluRay is playing at 24fps.. how do I know (just run fraps?) My TV supports 24fps bluray but would the HTPC default to this? If so that could possibly be the difference as I'm used to a nice smooth picture.

I know for powerdvd it there was a certain version that worked better then another so you may want to look into that. The reason why I stopped using blu rays on my htpc was because something interferred with my sound and I would have to restart every time to get it back so I just use the dusty ol' PS3

I don't really like PowerDVD

Weird, that 8800 should be able to playback Blu-rays with DXVA. Maybe you could get a cheap card like the HD4350 if you really wanted to have an HTPC. A AMD 4600+ is a good enough chip, I'm trying to get Blu-ray working and looking the best right now on a P4

Here is mine I built over the summer with spare parts since I moved back in with my parents, needed something to do and utilize my new man cave. It runs mostly everything, although XBMC causes stuttering with most videos. Sucks because I REALLY love the interface, but it also lags a bit. So for the moment its fun for show, otherwise I have to play everything through VLC until I find a pretty looking software that I can actually use. Still also figuring out how to do the music networking, not really sure what route I want to go, though iTunes seems to be the easiest since I already have it setup on my sig rig that has all the music on it. Maybe one day I'll get around to completing the project, but for now it works alright when I want to watch something on the big screen.

Specs:
Apevia case
Athlon 64 3000+
Asus K8V SE Deluxe
Corsair ValueSelect 2x512
eVGA 6600GT
80GB WD HD
SoundBlaster Audigy 2 for sound output
DVD-ROM
Wireless mouse used to control it/keyboard if needed
Running XP with XBMC set to startup programs (basically boots directly to XBMC seconds after XP logs on)
No TV tuner, no real need with DISH DVR

All connected to:
47" Samsung DLP (looks small in picture )
Onkyo TX-SR601 reciever
Polk 5.1 system
Velodyne CHT-12 subwoofer
--this system bangs... I can shake the house with some Brother Ali or Eazy-E when we're playing poker or drinking games of sorts.






HPTC seated next to the tv





From the back of the room w/ the poker table and couches. Don't mind the cans, had a party last night.


Things to do:
Possibly relocate HTPC to cabinets underneath TV for noise reduction
New software for media management

I could but I also use it for light gaming (SF4, Burnout Paradise, Etc..), a 4350 wouldn't play these, I'll make due for now.
