Sage Stuttering & Theatertek


Senior Member
As an initial update, I had original experienced occasional stuttering when playing back hard drive based media with Sage. I added Theatertek and changed the renderer in Sage and the issue seems to have been resolved.

I'm posting this in case it may help someone experiencing similar issues.

coincidentally, I recently screwed something up in SageTV too. I currently cannot use my purchased Elecard decoder plus dScaler, cuz try as I might, I simply cannot figure out what's causing the stuttering in my system when rendering HD.

Switching to the nVidia decoder eliminated the stuttering, but the PQ is clearly worse (softer) on SD.

Shame on me for changing something on a totally fxnl system.
