J7N is an unknown quantity at this point

Under MS A/V, I hit button '2' and it played in gspot perfectly.
BSPlayer has problems with Haali splitter. Most other software don't. You won't need the extra duplicate features of Haali: audio/sub streams can be selected in BSPlayer, bitrate monitor for video can be seen using ffdshow.

It doesn't?

> For a 720p you need a CPU about 1,7 Ghz but for 1080i around 2,5 Ghz. 1080p will require above 3 GHz to play.
1) H.264 can be made complex to decode in any resolution, not just these modern HD standards. It is wrong to automatically associate Matroska with H.264 and it with HD.
2) If CABAC is used (it mostly is, disregarding the processing power of target computers), the CPU usage is almost proportional to input bitrate, NOT resolution.
3) 1080i. Due to obvious reasons (legacy technology from the 1930s) interlaced video is not common in pir___d sources. And if it is to be played, it will have way greater CPU requirement, because of need for a deinterlacer.
