That chip should definitely play 1080p files fine, provided GPU acceleration is being used (I used to have an E-350 in my old HTPC). Try going to the VLC preferences window, Input and Codecs. The GPU acceleration options are at the top.
Why would things like that need to be turned on to enable playback?
What I'm saying is:
Is that due to newer CPU's? So why it isn't set by default?
Surely with all hardware produced now it should be?
On the point of plugging into a large TV though, is the quality still okay? Any computer screen is fine for the detail, but big screens really show the weakness of some chips power.--
