    Default ASROCK 330HT cannot play 1080p content

    Hello,

    i cannot play 1080p content on my 330HT ion based htpc.
    the config is:

    CPU: Atom 330 dual core at 1.6 GHz
    RAM: 2GB
    GPU: nVidia ION
    HDD: 320GB
    video memory share: 256 MB

    htpc is connected to TV trough HDMI

    when i try to play 1080p mkv files directly from HDD i have frame drops, sound gasp etc.
    i've installed WIN 7 Ultimate 32bit, drivers from asrock cd, K-Lite codec pack, vlc, bsplayer etc but same result with all the players and codecs.

    any help is appreciated!

    thank you

    Same problem here, starting to wonder if it is capable of playing 1080p at all. Getting framedrops even in 720p...

    I have an Asrock 330HT that plays all 1080p and 720p so forget all codec packs and other players and install Media Player Classic HD. It has the codecs built in and supports DXVA which is needed to fully use the ION GPU.
    Media Player Classic - Home Cinema - Video Player

    As an alternative and a very nice experience try: XBMC
    http://xbmc.org/download/

    MPC and XBMC are freeware.

    Windows 7 already supports DXVA in Media Player 12. You don't need anything else installed on a Win7 machine to get hardware acceleration, short of possibly a DirectShow codec for some odd format (Divx, etc.).

    Probably what's happened is when you installed all of these extra codecs and players, your DXVA support got turned off.

    Windows 7 supports H.264 and AAC natively, so you don't need codecs for those.

    DXVA support is already turned on for WMV/VC-1, MPEG-2 (including DVD), and MPEG-4 (all types, including H.264/AVC) - you just need a WDDM video driver installed. If your video driver can do Aero, you're already good to go.

    So try a reformat with just your drivers installed, and try it again.
