The DXVA is a HW thing, but it depends also on the different software implementations. Sometimes I had your players crash whilst potplayer played well.

Probably you will not solve this way, but who knows...? I know I would do this test Smile

You said you use mad video renderer: well even that I found could be a problem in some config, try to change to VMR9.

Anyway next week I will have my Mantiz and I will test too, for sure (with a GTX970).

You're right, I'm certainly going to try Potplayer. Who knows, maybe it works better. The thing is though that I can get madVR to work, it's just that the performance is massively degraded, because the Video Engine in the GPU doesn't seem to be used for decoding. When I use EVR Custom Presenter in MPC-HC (which is the standard renderer) with DXVA2 native or copyback, it freezes. And that always worked fine in the past (before I got a TB3 eGPU and the T570), which is why I'm thinking there has to be either a problem with my configuration or it's an inherent incompatibility when connecting a GPU via TB3. When I set the output in MPC-HC to VMR9 as you suggested, it shows right there that VMR9 apparently doesn't use DXVA. The weird thing is that I get the same freeze that I get with EVR CP, so maybe my issues aren't related to DXVA after all? In any case, I'll give Potplayer a try today, thanks!

But shouldn't be also some duties apart VAT? Here, with a 22% VAT it should be a final of about 32-35% more...

Yeah I was waiting cautiously for the Mantiz Venus to be made available on Amazon. But then I got an email saying free shipping in EU ? Well... There's some deals you can't refuse.

Mail says its temporary though, as a way of celebrating the release of the Space grey variant. Just something to keep in mind.

True. In some countries, VAT + customs duty.
