ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 5 Updated
If you’ve been following the development of ArcSoft’s Total Media Theatre 5 (TMT5), then you are aware that a beta version of the software introduced automatic refresh rate switching to the rate contained in the content natively based on display capability. There have been a few issues with the beta such as the Windows Media Center version of the player being unable to automatically switch. With the new release of 188.8.131.52, this problem seems to have been resolved at least from my experience.
Coupled with the latest updates to the Sandy Bridge platform, my personal 24p experience through a home theater PC (HTPC) has never been better *champagne cork popping* :). If you’re unsure of why 24p is such a big deal, check out our primer on the subject, 24p: What You Should Know.
While ArcSoft still considers the automatic refresh rate switching a beta feature, I have not encountered any issues with the latest 184.108.40.206 release. Give it a try and let us know what you think of the release.
