    Fair enough removing the UVD microcode, but...

    There's no longer any RV770 microcode in that repository at all, e.g. RV770_rlc.bin. That sounds slightly "over eager" to me...

      There never was any other RV770 related firmware expect for UVD in this directory, cause for example for the RLC we just use the R700_rlc.bin.

              And, this is an UVD1 card, so no luck for me.
              IIRC, it's 3.1 right now. Eventually (just a couple features away!) it will be 3.3.
              Code:
              lspci |grep VGA
              shows version.

              I've seen a report that the xvba bridges actually work for some videos with UVD1 chips, though (if you're using catalyst-legacy)...


              By the way, the *_uvd.bin firmware is not enough: you need to grab the latest *_rlc.bin firmware to go with them! (Or so the comments in the other thread indicate)

Or if further legal review would be necessary for it? The rotten thing about the missing RS780/880 support in UVD, is that my only machine that isn't strong enough to handle everything through software decoding, is RS780.

                I'm really looking forward for this support to expand!!! crystalhd (what I'm currently using) is a little awkward to use in terms of software support, and even in terms of bandwidth.
                I'm also curious whether it will need legal review.

                  Actually OpenGL 3.3 is a bit of a special case. It was released simultaneously with OpenGL 4.0, and includes everything from 4.0 that did *not* require new hardware. In other words: OpenGL 3.3 was explicitly designed so that all hardware that can do 3.2 also can do 3.3. Both AMD and NVidia did release drivers updates that added 3.3 support to all 3.2 capable hardware, but anything written before the 3.3 standard was released will only say 3.2, so that is most likely the reason for the outdated information you found.

                    The answer will depend on whether the final working code requires additional programming information and the nature of the extra info. All additional programming info will require review but in a lot of cases review is quick and easy.

                      UVD on RV770 [Radeon HD 4850]

                      The RS780, RS880 and RV770 chipset generations have some differences in their UVD block which needs to be handled first before we can release any code for them. R6xx have similar (but still different) issues.

                      I think I'm on a good way of solving that, but can't promise anything.

                      Cheers,
                      Christian.
                      Any progress with UVD on RV770/RV790? I am sad owner of Radeon HD 4850.

                      Thanks
