System specs: Dell Inspiron 1525 - Intel Mobile Express 965 Chipset - K-Lite Codec pack FULL latest edition.

I have the system connected to a 27" 1080p HDTV via HDMI (But the problem also exists if I connect the system with the RGB VGA cable as well).

I get an odd video glitch when there is vertical (up and down) motion on a video being played back. A horizontal glitch happens that disrupts the smootheness of the video about 1/3 of the way from the bottom of the screen. Almost like an invisible divider (if you were cutting the screen into thirds).

I have CoreAVC installed for HD content (older intel dual core needs this for 1080p content), and ffdshow for xvids. The problem occurs with BOTH decoders.

I updated my video card drivers, no change.

The only thing I can even think of is perhaps the overlay... but I tried a different one with the same result... maybe there is an overlay setting I am missing?

It is SO distracting when watching anything!

I would love an pointers on this, and also what that glitch is actually called, because I know my description is terrible.

The screen I took of the video did NOT show the glitch in the screenshot, but I will upload it anyway to show where the issue is.

I tried one of the other renderers, and I didn't notice a difference.

The glitch is hard to describe, but if I had to use previous computer experience, I would describe it more like a vertical refresh issue.

My video card output is set at 60hz which matches my TV. I updated my video card drivers and codecs like I said above.

How does one deal with vertical refresh issues?

There is no stuttering or anything with the videos, they are playing fine except for this one issue.

Perhaps if someone knows a specific renderer that can help with this?

SOLVED!

My last post got me thinking, and I checked the renderer settings.

MPC is using EVR Custom Pres - and one of the options was: Alternative V-sync.

Sure enough, checking this box has fixed the issue!

Simple simple, but a pain none the less.

You are on your way to earn your pocket protector....and be called by your friends to fix their computer problems when they have them! ;)

Happy you solved the problem. It just takes a simple check in the wrong box to screw everything, doesn't it?
