If it's old enough to be running XP it probably hasn't got hardware acceleration, anyway....
Jack616, I don't have the LAV splitter installed. I am using the MPC-HC internal filters and it cannot decode the audio from a Freeview HD recording. "Regular" AAC from a captured iplayer stream plays fine.sooty do a search for LAV splitters.You may well have the other one installed that has known issues with AAC
Your AAC is probably a splitter issue not a playback issue.
Brilliant. I finally have Freeview HD TS files, picture and sound, playing flawlessly on my netbook. I found this helpful article which describes the configuration process in detail. I can now thoroughly recommend the MPC-HC / LAV combo to anyone running XP with dedicated graphics for which VLC has no support.However you may need the LAV splitter to get the HD AAC from the humax to play
