I have an HTPC running windows 7, 64 bit, core 2 duo at 3gz each, 8 gig ram. I use a TBS 6903 to receive the fta feeds, and a gtx 1050ti graphics card to watch those feeds. I think with my setup, I should be see very nice 4k feeds from ses1. However, they play for a few seconds, change to a grey screen (still playing), back to good feed, etc.... I use the LAV filters and have also tried etymonic softreel. I'm stuck. I don't know what to try to get a nice smooth playing feed. I use DVBviewer latest version. HELP! I'll experiment anywhere.

Have you chosen a HEVC and 4K UHD hardware decoder and enabled it in LAV?

Chris...  If you could point me to an article or info about hardware decoder an how to enable in LAV, I might be in business. right now, I just select lav in the mpeg filter list. Obviously I don't have a clue.

my 4K tv has google cast built in I can CAST 4k from youtube via my android phone to the TV and watch it on there.  I have yet to figure out how to CAST from satellite tuner plugged into laptop to my 4k via either tsreader or vlc or any other program....

processing power isn't an issue since the TV does that but my problem is software and getting the laptop to be a provider source for casting with DVBS2 box

I'm not home right now but from memory while playing any stream right tic the screen, scroll to filters, tic on the LAV filter to open the LAV settings box. from there in the upper right section you will see a spot to enable hardware decoding, enable it and choose your decoder I use Cuvid for Nvidea, also tic the HVEC and 4K boxes and maybe one other but can't remember.

Hey Chris.... I have been to that screen with the lav filter options. I didn't notice an option for hardware decoding. Even if I had, I wouldn't have know what to do with it.  I'll be firing up the PC soon and see if that helps... Many thanks for your help.

Chris.... I'm on the lav filter page and where is says"hardware acceleration hardware decode to use:" the box indicates NVIDIA CUVID....
Under that is "active decoder: cuvid
Active hardware accelerator:  Geforce GTX 1050 ti

"hardware device in use is grayed out and underneath the grayed field is says:
"the selected hardware decoder does not support using a specific device"

Enable adaptive HW deinterlacing output mode is checked as is "50p/60p video
No software deinterlacing
I would send a screen shot but I'm a bit challenged in that area. It's the selected hardware decoder does not support using a specific device that doesn't make sense

seefoo with Cuvid the GPU selection is automatic if you choose DXVA copyback it should allow you to highlight your card. Also LAV is setup to work with MadVR for HEVC is this the renderer you are using?

I don't have a 4K capable card yet so I haven't played with those feeds yet and can't get into specifics about what settings in Mad will work best with 4K. You may need to experiment or wait for those here that are viewing 4K with success.

Basically I wanted to make sure you had hardware acceleration active and also MadVR.

Chris.... I changed to dxva copyback and then the GPU card showed up to select.  I do not have madvr but I can google it. I'm currently using the LAV for HEVC renderer. Actually it's the only one I currently have.

Added:   The lav renderer didn't seem to work well, the only other one I had was "system default". I used that and it improved.  I still have some stutter but at least it[s not freezing and losing the color. Looks like I'm on the right track with your help. I knew to go to the lav filter page but I had no clue what those acronyms for options meant. None of my other research hinted at the inputs needed.

I'm hoping the madvr will fix the rest of the problems.  Again, A big, giant, huge thanks. I've been struggling with this for a long time.

unless i buy a kodi device with hdmi output at 4k this won't work because VIZIO SmartCast E-Series 4K tv's are simply cast displays, so I actually need smartdvb to update and create a "CAST" button on it to display the video elsewhere.  I can cast from my laptop via Chrome application or cast via the youtube app on my phone but the only close attempt I have made is the casting feature in VLC but for some reason it only works for 1080p or lower and no one has mentioned online about 4k
