180.11 & red checkerboard
After installing 180.08, when playing back videos, either from DVD or 720p (I don't have any larger ones lying around) I get short moments, when the output is overlaid with a red/transparent checkerboard pattern.
I made a screenshot of it attached to this post.
playback is done with mplayer, output is xv. With the 177.80 all is well (the last driver I tried).
I'll revert for the moment to the 177.80, but looking forward for any help in decoding h.264 in matroska files, my AMD X2 3800 has 50-80% CPU usage on decoding them and this results in the occasional frame drop. ... seems like the old times, when I was playing back DVDs on my AMD K6-400, when I could playback dvds barely with lots of framedrop. I seriously hoped I would never have to experience this again...
