Info: HD audio from PC
Time

I didn’t mean to offend anyone. I just thought that choice of videocard was relevant when talking about HD audio passthrough. Getting perfect 23,976Hz output is important to me personally, since judder/stuttering drives me insane.

I don’t know if this is relevant to the GeForce GTX 970, but it’s important to be aware of these things when choosing videocard for AV playback.
I wasn’t aware of the AMD RGB flickering issue, or what cards are affected by it. This is also important to consider when shopping for a new videocard.

I was just trying to contribute. Sorry for the derail if this doesn’t apply to you Harmy.

I would recommend a videocard capable of outputting proper 1080p24 through HDMI.
Because you want a judder free output right?
I don’t think nVidia has good enough clocks in their cards to do this reliably yet.
Go for a good HTPC videocard from AMD.

I don’t recall ever seeing any judder problems with the output of my NVidia cards. I have read that there may be issues with AMD cards in full RGB mode, though. And you need full RGB mode if you want to avoid colourspace round-trips.

If your nVidia cards can output perfect 23.976Hz, or a multiple of this, then disregard my comment.
All other refresh rates will produce judder and/or dropped/repeated frames for film content.
I have had no personal issues with full RGB mode though.

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD - V2.5 - AVCHD DVD9 & NTSC DVD5 (Released)
Time

Just wanted to give a big thanks to all who have contributed to making these fine despecialized editions.
I recently showed my 10 year old daughter these for the first time, and she loved them😃 RotJ is her favourite.
She wanted more of course, so I showed her the prequel trilogy. She liked them too, but ranks them below the OT.
All is well.
Looking forward to RotJ 2.5, and my daughter can’t wait to see Force Awakens😃

Awesome work. Much respect from an old SW fan.
