    updated build (26th Nov)

    I've updated the nlite build at http://www.nextpvr.com/nlite-win32.zip.

    - moved from RGB to YUV to reduce CPU usage.
    - added experimental "-gpu" command line parameter for using dxva2 hardware acceleration during playback.

    Any feedback much appreciated.

    Tried right now.
    It's the perfect client. Channel change lightning fast, no lags whatsoever, all the errors that made NPVR (client) unusable in my config have gone away.
    The -gpu parameter leads to crash, but I've tried vlc and it's a vlc problem. It seems that with Intel GPU dxva 2.0 makes crash vlc.
    Anyway, it could be useful to recall some vlc parameters, like deinterlacing for example (for the pal world bob deinterlacing is important).
    Tried not so long, but noticed that switching to fullscreen causes problems. Screen freezes (going fullscreen), and sometimes going back windowed works, some other leads to crash.
    Anyway a really really good project.
    Tell me if there's something else to test.
    Thank you,
    sdf

    Great - glad it's working well for you! Thanks for checking it out.

    Yes, Intel GPU doesn't seem to like dxva2.

    It's currently doing 'blend' deinterlacing, but I can easily switch it to 'bob'.

    Yes, there is some known issues with resizing while video is playing. Still trying to work out exactly why this happens.

    Recording playback and Live TV are okay sometimes and crash other times. Logs attached.

    May I respectfully suggest a sticky post that always contains the latest version. I tripped and fell at my first install attempt a few days ago. Found a later version hidden in the midst of a thread.

    Was this only with the -gpu parameter?

    I'll add a sticky post to keep track of it in next few days.

    Works fine without -gpu ... logs attached.

    And in other trivial news ... the Exit in the menu does nothing.

    For web client it is not trivial. Not sure if nlite supports it but there is a config.xml to have FakeExit turned false which tells a web client to exit. This default is definitely a pet peeve of mine.

    Maybe it could be useful to switch deinterlacing it on the fly, as you can do with vlc. I tell you that because there are certain channels that are progressive (720p 50, like Rsi), and don't need deinterlacing at all.
    Anyway will try to test with different pc to see if -gpu parameter is working.
    Thank you,

    So far as I can see this works wonderfully. Have not had crashing problems, great channel changes, and the guide now loads very quickly. One thing that doesn't run is the Movies plugin... should it? It loads, brings up the play dialog, and nothing happens... .

    Great.

    It should work, as long it's not doing anything non standard. I just gave it a quick check, and it seems to be working ok.

    What file type was the movie you tried? mp4, mkv, something else?

    Is this happening on ever movie you try?
