Default 8756 + DVI + 1080i + XV/XVMC Freeze with WAITs

I was hoping the latest version 8756 would fix this. Playing any files using XV/XVMC through the DVI port at 1920x1080 interlace would freeze (sometimes requiring hard-reboot) the system with multiple:

(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ed6c, 0x0000ed6c, 0)

Motherboard: MSI K8NGM2-FID
Bios: 3.20
Memory: 1 gigabyte
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+
OS: Fedora Core 4 (latest updates)
Kernel: 2.6.16-1.2069_FC4
Mplayer-cvs: XV and XVMC
Television: Panasonic CT30WX15 through DVI->HDMI

Have tried with noapic, nolapic, pci=conf1, pci=routeirq, apci=off in different combinations.

The system is useable but not at ideal refresh rates if setup in a twinview config. There is nothing connected to the CRT port, basically faking a twinview config. Very noticeable video tearing, but no WAITs or freezes.

If the system is hooked up via the CRT/VGA port, everything works fine.

Using -vo gl2 with mplayer exhibits wierd display - kind of jerky/not smooth, I am guess it is because the Panasonic EDID is being misinterpeted at 120 hz instead of 30 hz interlace. Of course, opengl doesn't matter with Mythtv for output.

If anyone has gotten a configuration to work in a scenario like this, please please please reply, perhaps with your .config from your linux kernel. Basically, DVI or Component output, 1920x1080 interlace, PCI-Express video card and works flawless with XV/XVMC... been searching far and wide and this doesn't seem to affect AGP.

Default Re: 8756 + DVI + 1080i + XV/XVMC Freeze with WAITs

I have tried every possible combination of nvidia videocards, drivers and connectors to get 1080i working properly.
I just finished installing my MSI K8NGM2-FID and just for fun I tried 1080i through the HDTV composite output. It gets me a decent picture but as soon as I try to do something with video it still locks up the PC completely, wheter XV or XvMC (which doesn't work ).

Maybe somebody from nvidia can shed some light on the subject?

I have the same problem with locking up and freezing when playing video via the composite output with mythtv.

I however have determined that if i turn off the composite options in xorg.conf that i get working video but its really really blue and is compeltely un-watchable or usable.

I have a PCI(E)- Evga 7600GT and an Athlon X2 - 3800+ on gentoo linux running only "~x86".

Same board, same config here. I can get 480p with just a smidge of the right side of the screen cut off... basically 640x480. The Component gives me 525/60, and it looks pretty decent, but not nearly as sharp as the DVI. I'm outputting to a Sony KE-42TS2.

I'll keep you all posted if I figure it out, please do the same. I've heard that there's a BIOS update if you email MSI tech support.
