    Terrible playback for 1080p Videos

    Hi, Whenever I play a 1080p movie file, some parts of the video are perfect, but others are completely unwatchable (any videos up to and including 720p are fine). Sometimes the audio will go out of sync with the video or the video will look pixelated. I use Media Player Classic to play my...

    PowerDVD Plays Blu-Ray Audio, but no video!

    Title says it all. I have AnyDVD HD installed, and the PowerDVD 7.3 suite that comes with the LG SuperMulti Bluray/HD-DVD drive. The bluray/hd-dvd movie will play, but no video shows. I recently installed the CCCP Codec pack. Regular DVDs play fine. Anyone know what's going on?

    Hannspree 28" Slow Hi-Def Video

    I just bought my Hannspree HF289H 27.5" monitor. Everything works great, except when I try to play either a 1080p or 720p movie, the video skips/is slow/is lame. All standard definition movies work fine. Does this mean I need to upgrade my video card?
