System works great, plays DVD's w/ Power DVD
Network, MP3 playback, Divx playback.. all works outside of Media Center.

In Media Center, DVD playback has video freeze. I can get out of it, it's not a system lockup.
TV playback froze up on me once as well, but I can't replicate that now.

Happens on all DVD movies (tried 6)
They all play outside of MEdia Center.

All updates installed, freshly built system. Ran though a 24 hour burn in with no issues.

Any ideas?

3 weeks, over 100 views.. and nobody posts a thing.
Is this that difficult an issue, do I not have enough information, has no one come across anything remotely similar?

Have you had any success in resolving this issue ?

Im seeing exactley the same -- but I am using NVIDIA codecs. Works fine out of MCE, DVD playback freezes in MCE.

I have not had any problems with TV/record/playback etc that all works really well.

Thanks -- I appreciate your insight.

I am already a member of GreenButton etc...but I noticed the post here from "chaosmstr" and simply wondered if he had an update.

Not too many folk have seen the issue -- although there is another post in "HardForum.com" on the same theme.

I certainly did. The problem seems to be related to the realtek audio drivers. I am playing around with different versions -- but it definatly seems to be the source of the problem

i know why you were not getting any response. you were not specific, as to what type of freeze up you are getting, sure DVD playback freezes, but describe the freeze, is it the video, is it the sound, are video and sound out of sync, (audio not keeping up with video) video freezes and sound continue to play?. are you using an onboard sound card or a pci card.
