Ok, after updating to windows media 9 vcm or something like that I think my video quality has actually gone down a notch. It seems a little "grainier" than normal. I have a Radion 9600 Pro 256mb ram and use ffxdshow (sp?), xvid and a couple other big major codecs. It doesn't matter what I watch, even a direct DVD rip it still looks grainey. Any insight?
