Interventions in the System

If the adjustments offered by the DVBViewer are not sufficient to achieve playback with a desired filter combination, only tweaking the system registry helps. Please note: Never ever simply just remove unwanted filters, since they are registered in the system. The according entries can be found in the Windows registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. Changes in the registry should only be applied, however, if you know exactly what you do. Otherwise you could permanently compromise your system. There are better and much simpler ways to disable unwanted filters.

If you do not want to remove a filter completely, but achieve that the filter manager does not prefer it, you have to lower its Merit value. This value is located in the registry, but usually encoded and hard to find. Therefore Radlight® provided a small tool, the Radlight® Filter Manager. You can download it in the members' area at

The register/unregister buttons speak for themselves.

Copy CLSID copies the value into the Windows clipboard so that you can insert it into the corresponding box in the DVBViewer's directshow options.

Navigate jumps to or rather shows you the files belonging to the selected entry, for the Cyberlink Video/SP Decoder those are and for example.

The dropdown box lets you set predefined standard values for the merit.

The box below the Set Value button allows to enter individual values for the merit (just type in and press Set Value). Have a look at the About tab for further information.

Please note: For modifications to take effect, you first have to leave the user account and log in again (under Windows 2000/XP), or to restart the computer (?, Windows 98).
