    DXVA2 with HD2XXX and HD3XXX and HD42XX are Broken with gotham because it can only decode one stream at the same time and gotham open open one files two times. Since one year the bug is known and ignored. In the Beta they say that they don't fix it.

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't DXVA the DirectX Video Acceleration API from Microsoft?

      I don't think anyone in this forum cares about broken DXVA support. Why do you run Windows on a media center pc?

        Yes, DXVA is the API for Microsoft Windows.

        Why do you think that?

        Because its working. Do you tried to use the UVD Engine on those cards? And many ppl don't have a dedicated media PC, they use the Desktop/Laptop as Media PC and connect it with HDMI.

          No, I'm using a Nvidia card for my media center pc. XBMC works quite well with VDPAU.

            Thats nice. My HD5770 works quite well with VDPAU too. But the UVD works only with HD4XXX Cards and newer (except HD4200, HD4850 and HD4870). And my Media PC didn't work with GNU/Linux but it works without problems with Windows 7. Why i should use a System that doesn't fit the requirements?

              Dude, you are barking at the wrong tree, I don't have anything against Windows. I just found it odd that anyone would post his Windows problems on the Phoronix forums.

                XBMC works better on Windows 7. At least the 12.3 for Ubuntu from PPA sucks . Have do you ever use XBMC? You should know about this....

                  I've been using XBMC on Linux since its very first Linux release. Haven't had any problems for years now. Also I'm using the official XBMC PPA for Ubuntu 12.04.

                    Can't say I have found the same. In fact I have found the exact opposite finding more issues with the Windows release (and needing more "hacking" to function satisfactory) vs "it just works" on openSUSE.

                      What should he know about?

                      I run XBMC 12 both from Windows 7, Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04 (all from ppa). In what way does it run better under Windows 7? I don't have any problems on any of those platforms.

                        I have tested on Opensuse 13.1 x86_64 also, and it freezes to much. In fact there is some issue with opensuse and archlinux i don't remember what but is a distro specific trouble against some lib

                          To tell you the truth, it hasn't froze on me in years. In fact the only time the xbmc systems go down is to add a hard drive or to apply updates.

                          Edit: just checked, last xbmc crash log is from early 2010.

                            You just said yourself that it didn't?

                              I said that there is a bug in XBMC 13 (the workaround are 2 lines). But XBMC and Hardware Decoding has never worked good on those cards with GNU/Linux (only with a old Kernel, xserver and a va-api wrapper)
