You couldn't possibly be using the NVidia decoder if you're getting stuttering performance with that cool a setup. I have a P4 3.01 with a vintage ATI card that wasn't even close to playing HDV smoothly from WMP. Once I installed NVidia Purevideo, the HDV playback smoothed out entirely and the CPU usage drop to about 40%. What good is a great graphics card if your not using it's acceleration? You should not only be able to run HD smoothly on your setup, but you should be able to use your computer for other things at the same time! All that is standing between you and this is $20 worth of decoding software!

Well, actually, the reason why I get skipping is because I'm using one of the first AGP 6800 Ultras which had the broken chip issue. Because it's broken, I'll get stuttering no matter what. Had I upgraded to a PCI Express card, which had the chip issue fixed, I wouldn't be having these problems. But if I wanted to watch something in HD, I'd swap over to my Mac Mini and watch it on there instead. No biggie.

For the most part, no one else will notice the difference either. But the placebo effect with the video card fanboys is enormous! :D

Downloaded Nvidia still stuttering

I'm wondering if there is some issue with uninstalling other m-peg stuff- When I look in add/remove programs I have a "MPEG reader/writer for Premier" program installed (which probably came with the program) Should I be uninstalling that to get the accelerated playback capabilities. Anyone out there who is getting good performance from Nvidia and also has the above mentioned MPEG reader installed? What makes me think it could be is that also when I play the HDV files in Windows media player they play fine.

That's definitely not part of a typical Premiere install....

I never would imagine the Nvidia software would work with an Ati card. How did you even think to try it? Considering it doesn't work on some Nvidia cards why the heck does it work on "old" Ati cards. Is there a free demo? I can't imagine you plunked the cash down on a whim.
