Hi guys,

So I decided my GTX275 wasn't good enough for my so I went out and bought a GTX560Ti and installed it yesterday - going well.  I have two screen setup, one on DVI and the other my Sony Bravia connected via DVI/VGA adapter.  I pretty much dedicate my Sony to Windows Media Center and the 24" Viewsonic to normal everyday computing stuff.

But I have run into a small problem.  When I fire up WMC using the remote control it opens up on the Bravia = good.  When I select tv the audio starts to play but I just get no picture.  I found that if I windowed WMC, dragged it across to screen 1, then dragged it back to screen 2 the picture comes back - WMC then plays movies and tv fine until I either close and open it again or if I put the computer to sleep.

I never had this problem with my GTX275 so I suspect it is something to do with the installation of my new card.
I have updated to the latest nVidia drivers, reinstalled my HVR-2200 drivers and re-run the initial setup in WMC itself - any help here would be greatly appreciated.

My specs are:
Intel Core i5-2500K @3.90 GHz
Windows 7 Professional
4 gig DDR3
1x Corsair SSD (Primary)
2x Seagate Baracudda (2tb total)
HVR-2200 Tuner Card

My be the driver version. I have just rolled my MC back to a older NVidia driver as the latest one seems to give me a black screen on resume from sleep.

Maybe you need to set the Bravia as the primary display.

I don't think that matters - well it hasn't done in the past.  I tried that anyway without any luck...
