View Full Version : G75vw - choppy video playback HDTV via HDMI

09-28-2013, 07:30 PM
Hello fellow ROGers!

I recently purchased a HDMI cable (v 1.4, 3 meters), so I could enjoy watching full HD movies on my HDTV.
However I'm experiencing massive fps-drops more or less every "scene-change".

According to the task manager my laptop is hardly taxed at all during playback, nevertheless the fps drops.

My TV is a Samsung PS50A676 which I've been watching HD video on previously via VGA with an older laptop.

Settings are as follows:
Windows 7
1920x1080@60hz on both laptop screen and TV
Desktop is 'extended'
Windows Aero is disabled
Nvidia drivers are: 327.23 which were released 9/19/13 (I've also tried the previous set of drivers and reinstalled the latest ones once)
Computer scanned with MSE and Anti-Malware with latest updates and was 100% clean.
TV is set to 'Game mode'
TV is set to not adjust for overscan ("Just scan")

As you might deduce, I've spent a fair amount of time troubleshooting and searching the interwebs for possible fixes and I think I might slowly go insane in the membrane! :eek:

Would appreciate any kind of input on this matter!

Shameless bump since my issues persist. Choppy playback, slowed down performance generally, while CPU and RAM are not even breaking a sweat.

ND/SS - New Nvidia drivers, same ****...
I would've brought this in to the hardware support by now, though I bought this computer abroad at best buy.

please help
