Default Re: Minor Lag with Blu-Ray playback...

If he only has 2GB of ram I don't think disabling the pagefile is a smart idea....

What kind of CPU usage does he get when playing a bluray? I don't think the refresh rate could be causing this type of stutter....normally the refresh rate problem is constant jittering (caused by 3:2 pulldown) that most of the time you can't really notice. It's only on slow long pans that you can really see it. So if the CPU usage is really high, then obviously hardware acceleration isn't working...does his videocard support HA? Maybe he should invest in a cheap 9 series card (like 9400) that supports HA. Maybe it's a codec issue?
